Day 43 – F=mg

Physics 11 – In previous I my students always seem to have an on-going battle with “weight”, “force of gravity”, “Fg” and “mass.” I thought I’d confront this issue head on this year. My classes did a lab finding the relationship between Force of gravity and mass. They also used Excel to produce their graphs, which will make subsequent graphing tasks in class much faster. The students will then practice targeted questions on Fg. Hopefully this bit of time will pay off throughout the year.
