Title Mechanical energy lab - Remote
Description Students collect the time of skater at different heights (in the absence of non-conservative forces) and produce gravitational potential energy vs time, kinetic energy vs time, and mechanical energy vs time graphs in Excel spreadsheet. They also investigate the effect of mass of the skater on the graphs and on the speed of the skater.
