This is a great no prep self-checking activity to practice the calculations associated with kinetic energy and gravitational potential energy. Students need to answer 13 questions to reveal the image of the roller coaster. For each question they get correct, pixels of an image are revealed. Once all the questions are answered correctly, students will see the whole image.
Includes questions such as:
- Calculate the kinetic energy of a 3 kg cat running 3 m/s.
- What is the gravitational potential energy of a 50 kg person standing on a diving board 3 m above the pool?
- What is the mass in kg of a person who has 1176 J of gravitational potential energy when he is standing on a ledge 3 meters above ground?
- What is the mass of a person who runs at 2 m/s and and uses 86 J of kinetic energy?
Easy to use – you’ll be purchasing a PDF with a forced copy link to a Google Sheet. Share with your students, allowing each of them to make a copy.
