An ice experiment whilst we've been thinking about iceburgs

Week 7 (Wk Beg 4/5/20) Can you watch the clips from the BBC about air resistance. If you can find a lego man (or similar) and a plastic bag see if you can conduct the science experiment. Please take photographs!

Week 6 (Wk Beg 27/4/20) This week learn about Friction and Water Resistance. There is some great stuff on BBC Bitesize and an experiment to try.

Week 5: Wk Beginning 20/4/20 We need to start investigating Forces and this week is Gravity. Please find out about of one or both of these Scientists and their amazing discoveries! Choose how you would like to present your work. You might like to make a video, do a poster, an information page or a powerpoint.

EXPERIMENTS for any of you who might like to try them out and then explain them.

 

Galileo's Experiment

Named after the scientist who is popularly believed (though not verified) to have performed this experiment, it involves taking two objects of different sizes and weights and dropping them to see which one hits the ground first. As the Earth's gravity affects objects at the same rate regardless of their weight, without air resistance the objects should hit the ground at the same time. Try this with different objects with varying weights and air resistance and observe its effects.

 

The Spinning Bucket

Showing the relation between motion and gravity, for this experiment you need a bucket with water and someone with a strong arm to spin it. In theory, when the bucket turns upside down the water should come spilling out as gravity pulls it downwards. Spinning it fast enough, the water tends to keep going in a straight line, counteracting the pull of gravity and thus wedging it to the end of the bucket, preventing the natural pull of gravity from spilling the water. This is why this effect, called “centrifugal force” is often referred to as artificial gravity.

 
 

The Hole in the Cup

For this experiment you need a paper cup and some water. Poke a hole in the cup and cover it with a finger; fill the cup with water. Take your finger from the hole and notice the water spills out. Though gravity pulls down both objects, only water moves freely (because you're holding the cup); thus, gravity forces the water out. Fill the cup again and drop it to the ground. Now that both objects are free to move, they drop at the same speed so the water isn't forced out of the hole.

 

Center of Gravity

A center of gravity experiment can be done quite easily; all that is required is a pencil or pen and your finger. Try to balance the pen at different positions on your finger until you reach the point where it doesn't fall off. This is the center of gravity of the pen, the point in which its weight averages out and, if it were in a weightless environment, the point at which it can freely rotate. Put on the cap and try to balance it again. As the weight of an object changes, so does its center of gravity
