Demonstrate the effect of gravity on objects.
4.1

  1. Your Weight on Other Worlds - This Exploratorium site gets your students' attention by showing that their weight will vary with different gravitational attraction (you will not believe what you would weigh on a Neutron star!). Then, a very good presentation of the difference between weight and mass is given. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  2. A weight and mass converter is provided by ConvertMe.com. After your students use this converter, perhaps you could discuss if it is appropriate to perform this type of conversion. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  3. Mass vs Weight - discussion of the difference and interactive questions to check for understanding
