Free Fall Kit Components

This kit includes:

  • Electromagnet
  • Steel Ball
  • Landing Pad
  • Laboratory manual and student worksheet

This kit includes components needed for the Visual Scientifics Free Fall experiment. This simple apparatus allows students to observe the physics behind acceleration due to gravity, and study the principles derived from energy conservation and one dimensional kinematics. The included laboratory manual and student worksheet outlines experiments and provides informational resources for instructors to help with lesson planning and to help student carry out the activities. The activities cover approximately 2-3 hours of classroom or laboratory time, and cover Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards Concepts.

Please note that this kit does not include all required components for the experiments outlined in the laboratory manual.
