Product Details

The investigation begins with an introductory activity in which students are presented with a modified Atwood’s machine consisting of a Hall’s carriage connected to a hanging mass. Students learn to use this equipment to calculate the acceleration of a system from time and distance data. Once the introductory activity is completed, students design and carry out a simple procedure to understand why there is an inverse relationship between the mass of a system and its acceleration. Includes access to pre-lab videos, editable lab instructions, downloadable student handouts, detailed background information, safety information, teacher notes with answers to all questions and sample data, and teaching and lab tips. 


Complete for 24 students working in groups of three. Timers are required and available separately. All materials are reusable.
