Type of Ball and Max Height of Bounce

Added by R D Gavin on Dec 15, 2008

This simulation shows balls of different materials being dropped onto a surface. A graph measures the displacement to show how far each ball rebounds.

This item teaches:

  • about the variation in potential energy, kinetic energy and total energy with displacement
  • about kinetic energy
  • about the dependance of kinetic energy on mass and speed
  • about energy transformations involving kinetic energy




This item is not part of any lists.
