Summary of Collisions: Introduction

Type of Resource



The goal of these virtual labs are to allow students the opportunity to investigate into different factors that can impact collisions. Students will cause the collision of two objects and learn how various properties affect velocity and momentum.

Performance Expectations

HS-PS2-3   Apply scientific and engineering ideas to design, evaluate, and refine a device that minimizes the force on a macroscopic object during a collision.

MS-PS2-1   Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.
