This lab shows how to use kinematics equations to determine the acceleration of a mass along an inclined plane. This is the Tier 3 Challenge Video. Challenge videos add a “twist” to the standard lab set-up in order to develop student’s critical thinking in resolving unknown or unexpected challenges to the “ideal set-up”.
Download file includes the Video (MP4), the trial’s Data Files (a .csv and matching .csvp file) editable Lab Sheet (MS Word) for student use, and the Answer Guide (PDF) for the instructor. Users (instructors and students) must also download the BioForce Analytics Dashboard in order to use the data files.
