Day 24: Gravitational Force Lab Debrief


College-Prep Physics: Today we debriefed the gravitational force lab where students found the relationship between mass and weight.

Why does everyone have similar slopes? Should they? What does the intercept mean? How would the graph change if we repeated the experiment on the Moon? On Jupiter?

(Tomorrow is a Staff Development Day and Monday is Columbus Day. So we’ll be back next Tuesday for Day 25.)
