Pseudo Day 100 – Introduction to Impulse



Physics 11 – April 1

Here a student is helping me with my test apparatus setup for Impulse.  We have a cart with a spring plunger  that runs into and bounces back from a force sensor. I also have a motion sensor but there is only one usb interface so I can’t connect both the force and motion sensors to my computer at the same time.  Students are asked to predict what the force vs. time graph will look like. It’s a typical POE (Predict / Observer / Explain) demonstration.
