May the Forces be with You!

  1.  Go over Scientific Method quiz.
  2. I will be able to describe the difference between contact forces and action-at-a-distance forces and give examples of each.
  3. Do:  Read section 8.1 and fill in the worksheet.  See copy here:  What Type of Force is Shown
  4. Activity:  Force of Gravity – using a force meter (Newton scale), measure the force of gravity on different masses.  Make a graph that shows the relationship between the force of gravity (in Newtons) and the mass (in grams or kg).  Draw the best fit line.  Answer the question on the worksheet.  See copy here:
  5. Reminder:  brainstorm ideas for your science fair project!  Ideas due and approved by Nov.20.
