Mechanics Experiments

There are seven mechanics experiments on the leaving certificate physics course. All seven are listed here and are available as JavaScript simulations on this site. Experiment 7 is required for higher level only.

  1. Measurement of velocity and acceleration

  2. To show that acceleration is proportional to force

  3. Verification of the principle of conservation of momentum

  4. Measurement of g (Free Fall method)

  5. Verfication of Boyle's law

  6. Investigation of the laws of equilibrium for a set of co-planar forces

  7. Investigation of relationship between period and length for a simple pendulum and hence calculation of g
