|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.|
