Description:

This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiologycal Society's 2006 Frontiers in Physiology Program. For more information on this program, please visit www.frontiersinphys.org. The purpose of this lesson is to teach students about how bouncy rubber balls can be used to demonstrate the concepts of kinetic and potential energy. The topics of kinetic and potential energy should be previously covered or introduced. Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to calculate the energy lost between bounces and account for where the missing energy has gone.
