Product Details

AP Physics 1, Big Idea 3, Investigation 5

The purpose of this advanced-inquiry lab is to investigate the force that causes an object to constantly change direction as it travels in a circle.

Students begin with an introductory activity in which they practice rotating a rubber stopper in a horizontal plane and qualitatively explore the relationship between centripetal force and tangential velocity. Next, students vary the amount of force acting on the stopper and calculate the velocity of the stopper for each measured force. The results provide a model for the guided-inquiry design of a procedure to identify other factors that affect the centripetal acceleration of an object in circular motion. Three different masses of stoppers are provided.

FLINNprep is just one of the powerful learning pathways accessed via PAVO, Flinn’s award-winning gateway to standards-aligned digital science content paired with hands-on learning.

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


Includes access to FlinnPREP™ digital content for one year. *AP and Advanced Placement are registered trademarks of the College Board, which was not involved in the production of, and does not endorse, this product.
