Barycentric Balls - Orbits and The Center of Mass
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In this activity, the principle of moments is applied to rotating systems to demonstrate the concept of a barycenter, or center of mass, and how objects in orbit around each other move. Students then consolidate this concept by calculating the centre of mass in a number of astronomical contexts.

Lesson Plan on Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Students review Kepler's three laws of planetary motion, defining the parts of an ellipse and describing the calculation of the eccentricity of an ellipse and associated orbital path. In an associated hands-on activity "Constructing Orbits," students will model orbits using string and calculate the eccentricities of the orbits they construct.

Marble-ous Ellipses - Speed and Time of Orbiting Bodies
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Students will use an elliptical board to obtain speed and distance measurements for an object in an elliptical orbit. The results are then plotted on a graph of speed against time in order to understand how gravity effects (or changes) the speed of a planet or a satellite in an elliptical orbit.

The Moon Orbits the Sun?!?!
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Students compute the strengths of the gravitational forces exerted on the Moon by the Sun and by the Earth, and compare them. Demonstrate the actual shape of the Moon's orbit around the Sun. Students will understand the gravitational forces between bodies and tidal forces generated by those bodies are different, and compare the two.
