Investigating Work and Forces - Day 1

Unit 2: Electrostatics
Lesson 6 of 15

Objective: Students will manipulate elastic materials (rubber bands, plastic spoons, and springs) to generate force and distance data, then develop a model for estimating the work done.

Big Idea: Macroscopic scale objects (springs, for example) can serve as substitutes for microscopic scale objects like charges.
