Centre of Mass of a Glass of Water

Which has the lower centre of mass out of an empty vs half-full vs full glass of water? How about the same question with a beaker instead? Or with a can, with a lid? PDF here.

Centre of Mass Practice

Lots of practise in finding centre of mass. Can you find the centre of mass of each of these laminas? Includes answers.PDF here.

Circular Motion Intro

A good introductory task to considering circular motion. Students estimate radii, velocities and forces of everyday examples of circular motion. PDF here.

Masses and Springs Lab
