Mass, Velocity, and Kinetic Energy Lab Activity

Determine How Mass Affects the Velocity of Objects

  • Study mass and velocity
  • Simple launching device
  • Aligned with national standards
The investigation involves the use a simple launching device to deliver consistent amounts of kinetic energy. The students will give objects with different masses the same kinetic energy to see how far each will travel. The distance traveled is, in some way, related to the initial velocity of each object. Thus, the distance traveled can be used as an indication of initial velocity. The students' understanding of these activities will allow them to discover the relationship between mass, velocity, and kinetic energy while employing Framework Science Standards (PS2) and (PS3).

This kit has been aligned with all published National Standards. Pre- and Post-laboratory assessments and vocabulary words all target specific Science and Engineering Practices and common core standards. The teacher guide also contains specific "Did You Know" concepts that link the real world with the scientific standards explored. A student copy master has also been included. This lab activity can be performed repeatedly with the materials provided in this kit. Time requirements: This activity can be completed in one or two 45-minute class periods.

Ordering information: Kit includes 5 Launchers, 5 Rubber bands, 5 Launch dishes, 35 Washers, Teacher's Guide and Student Guide. Materials not included are 1 Meter stick or measuring tape
