Description

This highly interactive Exploriment App lets you explore the effect of gravity on weight and mass on different planets. You can also explore the effect of altitude on weight and mass and even of depth below the Earth’s surface. Use variety of instruments and free fall of a body to understand the effect of gravity in different scenarios. This app provides ample opportunities to try out various scenarios and compare the results across planets and varying altitudes, including scenarios of micro-gravity and near-weightlessness.



The Exploriments Series of interactive simulation-based tools makes conceptual learning in science an engaging and insightful experience. Visit www.exploriments.com to know more.



Activities:

Weight and Mass on Different Planets

--- Interactively weigh objects and compare mass on Earth, Moon and other planets using weighing scale, spring scale and pan balance



Effect of Altitude on Weight and Mass

--- Select a planet and then compare weight and mass at different altitudes

--- Drop a body and observe how the speed of fall changes as the altitude increases

--- Explore near-weightlessness in an environment of extremely weak gravitational pull



Effect of Depth below Earth surface on Weight

--- Almost everyone knows what happens to weight as you go to high altitudes, but it can be a surprising discovery to find out what happens to weight if we go towards the center of the Earth

--- A trip down an imaginary tunnel dug through Earth, lets you explore how gravity changes as you move towards the Earth’s center





Additional Features:

--- Highly interactive simulation

--- Easily manageable environmental settings such as selecting a planet, changing the altitude and changing the depth below surface of a planet

--- Intuitive visual experience supported by numerical and graphical output

--- Effective comparison between different settings

One of the best apps for middle grades science

I found this recommended on the MindShift blog and am delighted with it. I burst into laughter when I achieved zero gravity with the Effects of Altitude activity. Can't wait to get back to school and let my students loose with this one. It's a great visualization of concepts we can't effectively model in the classroom without digital help.

Exploriments : Feedback

This seems to be a fantastic application for the learners to come out of their labs and make their imagination work realistic to understand the theories.

The mass does not change and this should not be used to teach.
