Popper Energy Lab

Popper Energy Constant Lab
Name_____________________________________ | Date__________ Period_______
Find the elastic constant (k) and the launch speed of the popper using
an energy (as opposed to a force) approach.
● Popper
● Meter stick
● Scale
A complete lab report must include:
The materials you used and how you used them
The design of your experiment
Data collected in tabular form
Analysis of the data
A derivation of how you find the elastic constant from measured quantities
A conclusion:
❏ summarizing your results
❏ assessing any errors that may have affected your data
❏ discussing how you might improve the experiment and / or describing
what further experiments you might like to perform on this subject
