  1. Investigating the amazingness of theBouncing Ball!

    ball: the air inside the ball (which was originally at normal atmospheric pressure) effectively becomes 'pressurised', and the rubber compound from which the ball is made becomes more resilient. For both these reasons the ball bounces higher. Obviously, the ball does not continue to indefinitely become more and more resilient with higher temperatures.

  2. Investigate the rule of 'Force = Mass x Acceleration and so investigate the relationships ...

    I shall prise the Newton metre away, but catch the elastic band in my fingers, still keeping it at 10N. I shall slide the margarine box into the middle of the elastic band, as more kinetic energy is stored there, and without pulling it back, release the elastic band.

  1. Acceleration, Force and Mass

    Law 2: Constant acceleration causes constant acceleration. The greater the force, the greater the acceleration for that particular body. Therefore force is proportional to acceleration. F a If a particular acceleration is to be achieved, the force required to achieve it is also dependant on the mass to be moved.
