Physics Experiments

Physics is a subject that can be difficult for students to understand. With complex equations and situations, students often struggle to visualize what the problem actually means. Experiments and activities are an excellent way for students to create a simulation of what the problem looks like in real life. Not only do experiments and activities help students better understand the situation, but also create an interactive way to engage students.

physics experiments


Newton's Cradle is a classic physics experiment that uses basic materials to demonstrate kinetic energy and potential energy. Students will love watching after the initial drop how the marble causes the other marbles to move. This is a great way to demonstrate the basic concept of energy transfer in an engaging way.

One physics concept that will be fun to teach your students is the impact of mass on motion. Your students will feel like modern physicists as they place cars with different masses on their race track. While it may seem like a simple experiment, students can complete many trials to find an average time to go down the track based on mass.

Balloon science is a fantastic way to engage your students in physics learning! Students will follow along in amazement as the balloon is inflated inside of the plastic bottle. By changing the properties of the bottle, students will learn about how air moves and is transferred.

This physics science project is both fun to make and incredible to look at! Using washers and a few other simple materials, students will stare at their experiment for hours on end. Besides being mesmerizing, students will learn about waves and motion.

Add arts and crafts to physics class in this fun and adorable activity. Students will learn about balance and distribution of mass. You can even have your students color their robots and then compete!

If you are looking for experiments with water that will keep kids cool and entertained on a hot day, try out this food floating activity. Students will use different fruits and vegetables to see if it floats on water or sinks to the bottom.

Water experiments in the classroom can be so much fun! This activity will teach your students how fire can impact water and make it rise. Your students will love watching what seems like magic! Since this activity includes fire, it requires close adult supervision.

This unique physics activity has students work in groups to solve a physics mystery. Each group of students receives the same bag of mystery items and is told what type of machine they need to create. The challenge is that there are no instructions. Using the items, students will compete to see which group creates the best of the designated machine.

Physics is key to understanding the world around us. While some aspects may seem tricky to understand, many fundamental physics concepts can be broken down into simple concepts, some of which can be demonstrated using basic equipment at home.

Rolling, bouncing, racing, zipping, squishing, and more! Physics is fun, and these simple physics experiments are perfectly fun physics for kids; you can even do them at home or with small groups in the classroom. Whether you are exploring laws of motion, sound waves, or light, physics is everywhere! Make sure to check out all of our science experiments for all year-round learning and play.

Can physics be playful? Absolutely, and we will show you AMAZING physics projects for kids that are easy to set up, budget-friendly, and of course playful! Hands-on is the way to go with our young scientists, explorers, and engineers.

From catapults to rockets and ramps to light and sound, you will find a little bit of everything to start enjoying physics at home or add to your classroom lessons with your kids. We even have some free fun printable packs to help you get started at the bottom of this page.

You will love these neat physics project ideas we have to share with you. I handpick my selections based on what I think my son would enjoy, what supplies are needed, and what amount of time needs to be dedicated to each activity.

A good breeze and a few materials are all you need to tackle this Kite making physics project at home, with a group or in the classroom. Learn about forces needed to keep a kite up in the air, as you fly your own kite.

Make a paper helicopter that actually flies! This is an awesome physics challenge for young kids and older ones too. Learn about what helps helicopters rise into the air, with a few simple supplies.

This water density experiment with sugar uses only a few kitchen ingredients but produces an amazing physics project for kids! Enjoy finding out about the basics of color mixing all the way up to the density of liquids.

This easy to set up salt water density experiment is a cool variation of the classic sink or float experiment. What will happen to the egg in salt water? Will an egg float or sink in salty water? There are so many questions to ask and predictions to make with this easy physics experiment for kids.

Use items straight out of the kitchen for our sink or float experiment. Plus I am sure your child will be able to come with other fun things to test! This is a simple physics experiment and totally engaging for young kids.

The International Handbook of Evaluated Reactor Physics Benchmark Experiments (IRPhE) contains reactor physics benchmark specifications that have been derived from experiments that were performed at various nuclear facilities around the world. The benchmark specifications are intended for use by reactor designers, safety analysts and nuclear data evaluators to validate calculational techniques and data. The Handbook is a product of the International Reactor Physics Evaluation (IRPhE) Project, conducted by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA). While co-ordination and administration of the IRPhE Project is undertaken by the NEA, each participating country is responsible for the administration, technical direction, and priorities of the project within their respective countries. Access to some of the information and data included in this handbook may be restricted; full conditions for access are available below.

The 2021 edition contains data from 169 different experimental series that were performed at 57 different nuclear facilities. Some 165 of the 169 evaluations are published as approved benchmarks. The remaining four evaluations are published as draft documents only. All draft documents were reviewed by the International Reactor Physics Evaluation (IRPhE) Technical Review Group (TRG). Example calculations are presented; however, these calculations do not constitute validation or endorsement of the codes or cross section data. The IRPhE Project is patterned after the International Criticality Safety Benchmark Evaluation Project (ICSBEP) and is closely co-ordinated with the ICSBEP. Some benchmark data are applicable to both nuclear criticality safety and reactor physics technology. Some have already been evaluated and published by the ICSBEP, but have been extended to include other types of measurements besides the critical configuration.

The Handbook is published in electronic format (pdf files), where the experiments are grouped into evaluations, categorised by: 1) reactor name; 2) reactor type; 3) facility type; and 4) measurement type.

The International Criticality Safety Benchmark Evaluation Project (ICSBEP) Handbook contains criticality safety benchmark specifications that have been derived from experiments that were performed at various critical facilities around the world.

The International Reactor Physics Experiment Evaluation (IRPhE) Technical Review Group provides the nuclear community with qualified benchmark data sets by collecting reactor physics experimental data from nuclear facilities, worldwide.

The Working Party on Scientific Issues and Uncertainty Analysis of Reactor Systems (WPRS) studies the reactor physics, fuel performance, and radiation transport and shielding in present and future nuclear power systems.

When it comes to biology, science experiments for high school students usually bring dissection to mind. But there are plenty of other useful labs and hands-on projects for teens to try. Here are some of our favorites.

Learn about potential and kinetic energy by bouncing balls and measuring their heights on each rebound. This is one of those classic physics science experiments for high school that students are sure to enjoy!

The Moore Foundation grants will fund three projects: Two are experimental and will focus on developing new technologies for detecting dark matter and measuring gravitational waves. But the third, worth about $2.5 million and awarded to Dimopoulos and Graham, will be used to further develop the theoretical underpinnings that will enable future experiments.

Dimopoulos and Graham plan to use the Moore Foundation-funding to continue devising new schemes for co-opting technologies like NMR and atom interferometry in the service of fundamental physics research.

In one sense, what Dimopoulos and Graham are advocating for is a return to the way physics was done before colliders came to play such an important role in physics and the division of physicists into primarily theoretical and experimental camps.

When the legends of physics such as Galileo, Newton and Faraday were driving forward our knowledge of the Universe, they did so with simple tabletop equipment, working in small basement laboratories. Today, physicists collaborate on gigantic experiments with colleagues from across the world to explore the fundamental nature of reality and to see further into the Universe than ever before.

In this new series you can hear from experts at the leading-edge of scientific discovery, who work on enormous experiments like the Large Hadron Collider or the James Webb Space Telescope. Find out how these incredible facilities get built, how thousands of scientists collaborate effectively and what these incredible experiments are telling us about the nature of our Universe. 041b061a72
