A Smart Accelerometer: Circular motion, Centripetal force & the graph of acceleration (iStage 2)

english

Whether it is a spinning top, a ventilator or the carousel at the fun fair: Uniform circular motions can be found nearly everywhere. But which forces take effect in consequence of the motion? And how does the centripetal acceleration work?

The teaching unit ‘A Smart Accelerometer’ shows the students how the effects of the speedup can be measured by the Smartphone. With two practical experiments on a

Swinging Bodies: Video and graph analysis of spring and pendulum motions (iStage 1)

english

Oscillating objects are all around us. Each and every sound is produced by an oscillating source. Studying oscillation is not the easiest thing to do but one of the easiest ways to analyse them are spring and pendulum motions.

This unit is recommended for students age 14 to 19 as prior knowledge in physics and information and communication technology is required. The teaching unit can be adapted to the

Science in Sports: Inquiry-based learning about physical forces via video analysis (iStage 1)

english

How can you connect sports with classical mechanics? In the teaching unit “Science in Sports” students take videos of various motions, e.g. the flight of a ball or a moving bicycle. The underlying physical laws are later analysed by using the program ‘Tracker’.

This unit is recommended for students age 13 to 19 as prior knowledge in physics and information and communication technology is required.

Electromagnetic fields, magnetic-field induction and human environment (iStage 1)

english

In nature, electromagnetic fields are a common occurrence. Natural electric and magnetic fields encompass the earth, its atmosphere, and the space surrounding the earth. Humans themselves are a source of electromagnetic fields of different frequencies as well. Apart from natural sources, there also exist artificial sources, which, supposedly, are not harmless to humans. The aim of this unit is to make our
