Semester 2 – Day 38

On Thursday and Friday I’m doing a challenge problem with my students.

They have the two mass set up as shown. They must predict the time it takes the hanging mass to fall to the ground. They know the value of the masses, and they are given a meter stick. They are only allowed to time the fall to see if their numerical prediction is correct.
