Understanding Gravitational Pull
What you need.
- lead sinker
Steps to follow:
- Prop up the kitchen table by placing the books under the legs of one end. About 2in high
- Take the ball first and roll it down the table observing its speed. You can have someone time it for you.
- Now throw the ball in the air and observe its speed and path.
- Next pour water from the pitcher again observe its speed and path. Time this too.
- Now drop the lead sinker and the ball. Observe the difference in path and speed.
Try all sorts of different items in your home.(feathers vs balls or Legos vs blocks) This is a fun experiment to do in a multi-age family or co-op setting; giving 2 children separate items and have another document the results.
