FREE SCIENCE LESSON - “Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion, F=ma, Logic Puzzle”

by The Science Vault
9th - 10th Grade

This is a logic puzzle which requires students to use their understanding of the algebra involved in Newton's 2nd Law of Motion (F = ma) to solve correctly. The masses and acceleration are given but not attributed to a particular student, and the instructions are to help the students figure out the masses of each of the carts, the acceleration of each of the carts and the force applied to each of the carts. There are five sets of each piece (Force, mass, acceleration) of data. I use this as a fun wrap-up of Newton's 2nd Law of Motion with my 9th grade physics and 9th grade physical science classes.
