In order to calculate the velocity of a moving ball on a track, students need the laptop to measure the speed of two air-track gliders. The speedometer needs to be connected to the glider and the laptop so the program can pick up the time of the gliders. Then, students will measure the distance and therefore, measure the speed by using the physics formula for velocity. They will also be able to measure the momentum of the cars. Students will measure the mass and velocity in order to see conservation of momentum. Students will apply their knowledge of physics and visual aids and will become better learners from using the laptop. They will be able to see real life examples on the computer of momentum and velocity by watching videos. They will also use the online PhET simulations to better understand the hard concepts of physics. The simulations will also be used as labs to earn hours for state accreditation to graduate high school.
