- “Resonance” – This experiment is designed to develop the student’s understanding of resonance. Students explore resonance of transverse waves on a string and discover the relationship between nodes and antinodes for different resonant modes. Students also derive the relationship between frequency length for a single resonant mode.
- “Apple Bounce” – Students will determine the energy conversions that occur as an object falls and hits a force plate. Students will be able to analyze their data to determine how much energy was transformed into other forms during the impact and state the form(s) that the transformed energy took. They will be able to compare and contrast inelastic, partially elastic, and elastic collisions.
There is no charge for the workshop. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Five and one-half in-service credits will be awarded for participation.
