In here you will find a list of all the Lab4Physics experiments so you can experiment wherever you want and with whoever you want: either working at home with your students remotely or in class.
The details of each experiment, the teacher instructions and the lab report with questions for your students, are available in our Teacher Portal
To introduce the definitions for, and understand the fundamental differences between, displacement, trajectory and distance traveled in order to use these concepts to describe motion.
Let’s Go to the Movies
Understand the process of creating and analyzing graphs of position vs. time and of velocity vs. time and their relation to each other.
To understand the difference between speed and velocity and the difference between instantaneous velocity and average velocity
Force and Energy
Understand elastic force and how it could affect movement.
Pull the Sled
Study the friction force present between two surfaces that move relative to each other and how it varies depending on the materials in contact with each other
The Bus Brakes Down
To understand the relationship that exists between the net force, mass and acceleration of (1) an object that is subjected to forces of different magnitudes or (2) objects with different masses that are each subjected to a force of the same magnitude.
Rotation and Torque
To understand the relationship between the angular velocity and the linear velocity of a rotating object undergoing uniform circular motion.
Describe the acceleration present during Uniform Circular Motion (UCM). Identify centripetal acceleration and the factors on which centripetal acceleration depends
To describe the motion of a rigid body as it is tossed into the air, analyzing its movements both from any point along its body and from its Center of Mass.
Study the quantities associated with pendular motion and their dependency on the characteristics of the pendulum (length, mass, initial conditions, etc.)
To understand the effect that the medium of propagation has on the motion and amplitude of a wave as it travels through the medium
Determine the relationship between the pitch of a musical note and the tone and frequency of its sound.
