Orbits Lab

  • See > AP Physics > Resources > Chapter 13 for the Orbits Lab Requirements, Technical Report Writing Guidelines, and spreadsheet template
  • Work in pairs. At least one member of the team should have experience with spreadsheet formulas.
  • One report per team of 2. 
  • Carefully follow the Technical Report Writing Guidelines. This is as much a writing assignment as a physics assignment and you will be graded on following the required format, including all sections. 
  • Hand in a printed copy. You may staple the sheets together or use an edge binder. Two-sided printing preferred. 
  • Due Friday 4/15 in class.  Penalty for late work.  Mastery.   
  • Continue work on Orbits Lab with your partner on your day off
  • Study the Technical Report Writing Guidelines and bring questions to class Wednesday
  • No school Tuesday (testing), short class Wednesday.  Wednesday will be available for finishing up the lab.
