• Slides: 9

STATION 1: NEWTON’S 1 ST LAW Newton’s 1 st Law of Motion states… An object at rest remains at rest, and an object in motion remains in motion, until an unbalanced force acts on it. Write this in your own words!

STATION 2: WASHER ACTIVITY 1. Stack 4 washers on a flat surface. (like your desk) 2. Aim one washer at the bottom of the stack and quickly flick the washer. 3. Repeat this with 2, 3, and 4 washers.

STATION 3: INERTIA: The tendency of an object to resist a change in motion due to its mass. Which has more inertia? Why?

STATION 4: PENNY VS. NOTECARD 1. 2. 3. 4. Place the 3 x 5 index card over the upright cup Lay the penny in the center of the card. Strike the edge of the card quickly with a flick of your index finger. Try completing this with both a beaker and a flask.

STATION 5: SEATBELT ANIMATION Watch the animation of a person not wearing a seatbelt being thrown from a car. How does a seatbelt protect a person from the effect of inertia ?

STATION 6: Penny, Card, and Clothespin 1. Place the index card on top of clothespin. 2. Lay the penny in the center of the card. 3. Remove the card by flicking it, however, the penny must remain in place on top of the clothespin.

STATION 7: INERTIA IN REAL LIFE If you are riding in a car that is traveling in a straight line and then makes a sharp left, what happens to you? Why?

STATION 8: INERTIA DEVICE 1. Place card board, silver side up, on top of vertical post of base assembly. 2. Place ball on card board directly over vertical post. 3. Pull back spring steel trigger. Release trigger. The spring steel trigger should push the card board out from under the ball, allowing the ball to rest on top of the vertical post.
