Relating Force and Motion
Sixth grade teams set up an investigation regarding force and motion. Each team dropped a single plastic cube onto the raised end of a ruler and observed how high a single cube was launched. The teams continued dropping cubes (2, 3 , 4, and even 5 cubes) onto the raised end of the ruler and observed how high the single cube was launched. Each was repeated for a total of 3 trials to give more valid results.
How was the force related to the motion of a launched cube? Opposite directions!!!
