Plan a Trip to the Asteroid Belt

Unit 1: Forces in One Dimension
Lesson 6 of 11

Objective: Students use Newton's Second Law and kinematic equations to determine the time it would take various rockets to go from Earth to the asteroid belt beyond Mars.

Big Idea: Kinematics equations and Newton's 2nd Law allow us to better understand the universe around us and to make predictions about an object's motion.
