Measurement of the Kinetic Energy of a Body by Means of a Deformation.
Perez, Pedro J.; And Others
Physics Education, v31 n4 p218-22 Jul 1996
Describes a technique that measures the deformation produced in a plastic material by a falling ball in order to compute the ball's kinetic energy. Varying the parameters produces accurate results and gives students a good understanding of the measurement of energy. Combines various mechanical concepts that students have learned separately in general physics courses. (JRH)
