Summary of Velocity & Air Resistance

Type of Resource



The goal of the Velocity & Air Resistance virtual lab is to allow students to investigate how height and mass impact speed and time. Students conduct experiments to understand the relationship between a ball’s mass and volume, its final speed, and its acceleration when it is dropped from different heights.

Performance Expectations

HS-PS2-1   Analyze data to support the claim that Newton’s second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.
