Titolo Graphing Energy at the Skate Park
Descrizione **IMPORTANT NOTE: If the program's energy graphs are choppy, do the following: RECORD several cycles PLAYBACK SLOW This should smooth out the graphs! Good luck! Learning Goal: The purpose of the energy skate park simulation is to see how energy gets transferred in a real world application. You will draw graphs to represent how energy changes. In this simulation you will manipulate the skater and friction to see the affect of these on a skater who behaves according to the laws of physics. The students begin without the sim making predictions on what the graphs look like for potential, kinetic, thermal, and total energy (with and without friction) of a skater rolling back and forth on a half-pipe. They then use the sim to check their predictions.
