Marble Madness Lab Activity
Page 1 of 4
In this lab, we will learn how to measure velocity and about the relationship of velocity to displacement and time. We will learn about velocity by rolling a marble (or other small ball down a ramp positioned at 6 different heights. We will then calculate the velocity of the ball at the bottom of the ramp for each of the 6 heights, and we will use a Velocity Versus Ramp Height graph to determine the effect of book height on the velocity of the ball.
