Students must determine the work done by a horizontal force when there is a frictional force acting on the box. Students must then find the speed of the box. 


Students must determine the work done by a force on an angle when there is no friction present between the box and the table. Students must also find the final speed of the box after this work has been added to the box. 


Use the angle of incidence and the angle of refraction to determine the index of refraction for a material. 


This is a major rewrite to the graphing program that adds the following features. Raises the number of allowable data points from 10 to 19. Updates the graphs in real time as you add data points. Allows you to over ride the automatic curve fit with manual graph constant entries. 


This lab is designed to examine the factors that affect the radial acceleration that is felt by a driver that is going around a turn. The acceleration sensor is located on the driver's side of the car. Students will be able to change the radius of the turn and the speed of the car. 


Challenges students to hit as many targets as possible by adjusting the angle of the kick until the angle will create the perfect range for landing on the target. 


This lab is designed to have students find the relationships that govern the behavior of a soccer ball that is kicked on an angle. The ball will start on the ground and end on the ground. Students will have control over the speed of the ball, the angle of the kick and the gravitational field on the planet where the kick takes place. Students will be able to measure the maximum height attained by the ball, the time of flight and the horizontal displacement of the projectile. 


Students must show they are able to find the components of a velocity vector and that they can calculate the velocity vector from the components. Students must be able to get 5 in a row correct to receive credit for this assignment. 


Students must determine the landing location of a projectile that started as a box sliding across a rough surface. Students must first find the speed of the box when it has reached the end of the table and then treat the box as a projectile. 


Students must determine the horizontal speed of a projectile based on the distance that it travels and other given information. Students must find the time of flight and put it in milliseconds. Finally, students must find the final vertical speed of the projectile. This problem does not take place on Earth. 


This lab is designed to have students look at some of the different relationships that exist in a right triangle. Students will be able to change the xleg and yleg of the triangle and then measure the angle and the hypotenuse of the triangle. 


In this problem you will have water flowing through an underground pipe and then passing into a ground level nozzle to create a fountain. Based on the pressure in the pipe you will find the speed of the water in both sections of the pipe and the maximum height of the fountain. 


Students must find the value of the amount of stretch that will occur to a spring on another planet. 


Students must determine the flow rate and speed of the water leaving a faucet based on the properties of the beverage dispenser that it is coming from. 


Students must find the value of the spring constant based on direct measurements of length. 


This lab is designed to have students find the relationships that affect the stopping distance and stopping time of a car on a roadway. Students will be able to modify the tires, road surface, the mass of the car, gravitational acceleration and the initial speed of the car. Graphs showing how each factor affects the stopping distance and stopping time can be created from your data.
