In this demonstration a golf ball is dropped onto a wooden floor and the classic speed-time graph for a bouncing ball is produced and examined by the students.

This item teaches:

  • about kinetic energy
  • about the variation in potential energy, kinetic energy and total energy with time
  • about the variation in potential energy, kinetic energy and total energy with displacement
  • how velocity-time graphs are constructed
