Day 128 – Collision Analysis

WP_20160411_14_33_35_Pro (2).jpg

Physics 11 – Students were given two options to analyze and report on a collision.  One option was to analyze two carts exploding apart (spring plunger activated), where one cart has an unknown mass on it. Option two was to analyze the impulse given to a popper toy.

Almost everyone chose the popper. It was the harder one to analyze because students had to incorporate projectile motion in order to complete their analysis.
