Alisa Hilfinger, Westborough High School, Westborough MA This activity is based on the common experiment of running a marble down a ramp to do work on a cup. Many different versions of this type of activity exist and will pop up under a general Google search. Students will be able to see the relationship between mass and work done on the cup and/or ramp height and work done on the cup. 9th Grade introductory Physical Science class
