Newton's Car Lab

  1. 1. NEWTON CAR
  2. 2. DAY ACTIVITY DAY 1 Lab Design DAY 2 Collect Data DAY 3 Organize Results and Data Interpretation
  3. 3. Background: Control variables (constants)- Purpose: And to investigate how increasing the number of rubber bands affects the car’s acceleration
  4. 4. Hypothesis <ul><li>Part #1: If the number of rubber bands increases, </li></ul><ul><li>then the car will travel _________ </li></ul><ul><li>because______________ </li></ul><ul><li>Part #2: If the ________________, </li></ul><ul><li>then the car will travel ________ </li></ul><ul><li>because ________________ </li></ul>
  5. 7. TESTING:
  6. 8. 1 2 1 3 2 3 grams grams Part 1: More Rubberbands Part 2: Heavier canister
  7. 9. <ul><li>Restate your aim and your hypothesis </li></ul><ul><li>Answer your aim. </li></ul><ul><li>Do your results support your hypothesis? (Use </li></ul><ul><li>your data to answer this) </li></ul><ul><li>Explain the “science” behind the experiment. (using scientific knowledge or theories). </li></ul><ul><ul><li> 2nd law explaining manipulation of variables </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> 3rd law explaining why car moves </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> 2nd law explaining why car’s acceleration increases </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Momentum explaining how acceleration and </li></ul><ul><li>distance travelled are related </li></ul>NEWTON CAR LAB SUMMARY
