    LAB: Rolling Without Slipping

    Objective: Moment of Inertia by Inquiry

    Description: Students experimentally determine the moment of inertia of six different objects (2 solid spheres, 2 solid discs, and 2 rings) by rolling them down a ramp. They then compare their experimentally determined values to the theoretical values which they calculate themselves.

    Equipment:
    2 solid spheres
    2 solid discs
    2 rings
    (note that these items can be purchased as a group set through lab supply vendors, or you may create your own)
    stopwatch
    meter stick
    protractor
    string

    Procedure:
    Students develop their own procedures for this lab. Note that the students can take one of two paths to determining the moment of inertia of the rolling objects... both result in the same values if derived carefully, and each is a good reinforcement of key concepts students have been studying up to this point in the class.

    SimuLAB: Make Your Own Capacitor SimuLAB

    Students are given online simulation tools at PHET Colorado as well as a set of key learning objectives. In teams, they are then tasked with using these resources to build a lab for future students which has students performing experiments using the simulations to better understand the learning objectives.

    PHET Simulations Required:
    Capacitor Simulation
    AC/DC Circuit Construction Kit

    My students do some pretty neat stuff when given such open-ended assignments, and the quality of the work is often times at a level where, with minimal modification, it could be handed out to another class as an actual lab learning activity.

    WS: Emission Spectra

    Using an energy-level diagram of mercury, students determine the energy released (in eV) for specific electron transitions, as well as the wavelength of the emitted photon (in nm).

    Students then use this data to draw/color both emission and absorption spectra.
