#1 Work lab
concept  The mathematical product of a force and the parallel distance through which it operates is known as work. A system can do work only if it has energy. 
Equipments  inclined plane Hall’s carriage 500, 750, and 1000 gram masses newton scale masking tape meter stick 
purpose  Students collect data for towing objects of varying mass up an inclined plane at various angles to develop the concept of work.

#2 Simple Harmonic Motion Lab
concept  SHM is a type of periodic, oscillatory motion in which the cause of motion is a restoring force of the form F= kx. This relation, known as Hooke's law, shows that the force responsible for the periodic motion must be oppositely directed to the oscillating object's displacement(toward the equilibrium position) and proportional in magnitude to the displacement 
Equipments  steel measuring tape string or spring stopwatch masses with various weight 
purpose  Students find out the period of motion while doing simple harmonic motion.

#3 Energy lab
concept  The WorkEnergy Theorem states that the work done on a body by an external force is related to the resulting change in kinetic (K) and/or potential (U) energy. 
Equipments  track and object meter stick balance stopwatch 
purpose  students prove that the energy is conserved, by observing the energy state in motion.
