Experiment for middle school with Uniform Acceleration

1. I must present an experiment for middleschool children about Uniform Acceleration or paraboles to teach them how it works.


I've tried some stuff but maybe to complicated to fabricate or reproduce, for example, I wanted to do a catapult that made a small parabole and predict where it would fall or how high would it reach but the only catapult guides were overly complicated.

Help really appreciated.

Hi Alexi! Welcome to PF! :smile:

How about good ol' Galileo's Inclined Plane experiment?

(google it! :wink:)

Thanks! Let me talk to my partners about this but definately a good idea.

But I guess the surface must be as smooth as it can be (in the inclined plane that proves that acceleration of gravity is the same but can be slowed down by the inclination).
