The O'Donnell Foundation is devoted to building model programs to enhance the quality of education.
Over the summer PhET will be hard at work upgrading our simulations for the new school year! Help support our summer vacation work and give the gift of learning by donating today!
|School / Organization||Los Gatos High School|
|Simulations||Lab Gaya Gravitasi|
|Keywords||physics, gravity, cavendish, newton, inverse square|
|Description||This lab guides student through a process similar to what was done with Henry Cavendish's experimental results to determine G and the mass of the Earth. They also use the data to determine the Law of Gravity as Newton did. The lab instructions mention a program from Vernier called Graphical Analysis. A graphing calculator or Excel also can be used. I have a sample key in pdf format that I will be happy to email to you if you provide evidence of your teaching status like a school email address.|
