Newton Car (Second Law of Motion)
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In this lesson, students investigate the relationship among mass, acceleration and force, as described in Newton's laws of motion. Students will work in collaborative teams to use a wooden car and rubber bands to toss a small mass off the car. The car, resting on rollers, will be propelled in the opposite direction. During a set of experiments, students will vary the mass being tossed from the car and change the number of rubber bands used to toss the mass. Students will measure how far the car rolls in response to the action force generated.

Overview:

In this STEM lesson, students will use the engineering design process to design and construct rocket-powered racing cars with which to investigate Newton's Laws of Motion. Each student will construct his or her own car from food trays, and will use inflated balloons to power the car (thrust). Students conduct three trials and measure the distance traveled by the cars. Between trials, students modify their designs to improve performance and solve any "mechanical" problems that crop up. At the conclusion of the activity, students submit a report on their racer design and how it performed in the trials.
