Day 53: Bike Wheel Direct Measurement Video


AP Physics C: I had to leave early today, so AP Physics students practiced their rotational motion problem solving using this direct measurement video. Click picture above to view video (QuickTime).

Here’s the lab handout. (It is focused on rotational kinematics and energy because we haven’t done torque and Newton’s Second Law for Rotation yet.): LAB DMV Bike Wheel Energy 2015 (word)

NGSS Science and Engineering Practices:
#4. Analyzing and interpreting data
#5. Using mathematics and computational thinking
