High School Physics/Applied Physics Experiments

Si UnitsEdit

Force → newtons (N)

Pressure → pascals (Pa)

Acceleration → (meter per second) per second (\frac{m}{s^2})

Work → joule (J)


Moving a block with your hand work done on the object


riding a bike down a hill, slipping and falling


  1. inelastic collision (billiards type)
  2. elastic collision (both go together)


  1. Kinetic energy (motion)
  2. Potential energy (stored motion)
  3. magnetic energy(attractive motion)


-Materials: batteries, wires,

  1. Current vs. Voltage: the pipe analogy
  2. Ohms law: metal (conductors) vs. rubber (insulators)
  3. Series circuits (part 1 of the circuits experiment)
  4. Parallel circuits (part 2 of the circuits experiment)
  5. Voltaic Cells - Making electrochemical batteries. (File: Lab - Juicy Fruit.pdf)
