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.

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.
