Day 15: Empirical Force Law Experiments

One section of Honors Physics had a lab period today, and we used the time to investigate the relationships between mass and weight and between spring force and spring stretch. We finished our boards, spent some time making the equations into a good format (using meaningful symbols, getting rid of the +/- we learned about from using LinReg, and putting units on our slopes), then ran out of time for the actual board meeting. The boards are saved in the “secret hiding spot” and ready for some good discussion when we meet again on Thursday morning.
