Will they make the jump? Physics students test Hollywood suspense!
Have fun calculating the correct launch variables to clear the ring of fire!
Create an exciting indoor projectile investigation with this complete lab, inspired by the movie Speed. Calculate the bus's landing spot, and then test it! Friction pull-car travels at the same top speed, trial after trial, and the ramp adjust to three angles (10, 20, and 30 degrees). Complete lessons, originally developed by teachers at Cornell University, are included. Suitable for high school or introductory college courses. Kit includes six-foot flexible track, adjustable ramp, and friction pull-car.
The Stunt Car Challenge was developed in collaboration with the CNS Institute for Physics Teachers (CIPT) at Cornell University.
Students calculate the trajectory needed to clear the Ring of Fire.
Friction pull-car is fast and consistent.
