Grade 8 Agenda:

HOMEWORK: Gravity Quiz on Monday

 

Integrating Math: Graphing The Strength of Gravity vs Distance:

  1. Graphing Gravitational FORCES Worksheet

  2. Complete pre-lab portion of worksheet.

  3. Check-in with your teacher.

  4. after check-in, start THE PHET GRAVITY FORCE LAB

  5. Collect data using the protocol below.

  6. Create a graph of the data using Google sheets

  7. Finish the worksheet.

  8. Data Protocol

  • Set both masses to 1000 kg.

  • Click "show values" and "constant radius"

  • Move the m1 so it is at 0.0 m.

  • move m2 so it is at 1.2 m (just about as close as it can get.

  • Make a "T" table labeled "Distance (m)" and "Force (nN)"

  • The unit nM is a nanoNewton or one billionth of a Newton.

  • Find the force of attraction in nanoNewtons by moving the decimal 9 places to the right.

  • Record the force for 1.2 m.

  • Move m2 to the 2m position and record the force in nN.

  • Repeat every meter, 3m, 4m, etc.
