Marasco, David – Physics Teacher, 2020
A bouncing rubber ball under a motion sensor is a classic of introductory physics labs. It is often used to measure the acceleration due to gravity, and can also demonstrate conservation of energy. By observing that the ball rises to a lower height upon each bounce, posing the question "What is the main source of energy loss?" and…

Ekantini, Anita; Wilujeng, Insih – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2018
Indonesia is a country that has abundant renewable energy sources, one of which is hydropower that can be utilized as an alternative energy source. However, fossil energy remains as major supplier of energy needs in all sectors of activity. The Education for Environmental Sustainable Development (EESD) approach can be applied in science education…

Satriawan, Muhammad; Liliasari, Liliasari; Setiawan, Wawan; Abdullah, Ade Gafar – Physics Education, 2020
This research aims to develop an ocean wave energy converter kit from low-cost materials as a teaching tool. The kit is developed using the working principle of a wave energy converter that uses a buoy as a system drive and a weight balancer that is connected to a chain. The dimensions of the kit are 6.7 × 0.3 × 0.4 m (length × width × height)…
