Activity 2
Rolling toy
Objective:
 After performing this activity, you should be able to explain how a
twisted rubber band can do work and relate the work done to potential energy.

Materials Needed:
1 clear plastic container with cover
1 rubber band
1 pc 3-cm round barbecue sticks
1 pc barbecue stick with sharp part cut

Procedure:
1. Make a hole at the center of the cover and at the bottom of the plastic
container.

2. Insert the rubber band into the hole at the bottom of the container. Insert
in between the rubber band the 3-cm barbecue stick. Tape the barbecue stick to
keep it in place.

3. Insert the other end of the rubber band into the hole in the cover. Insert a bead or
a washer to the rubber band before inserting the long barbecue stick.
4. You just made a toy. Twist the rubber band by rotating the long barbecue stick.

Activity 3
How POWER-ful am I?
Objective:
 After performing this activity, you should be able to compute for your power
output in walking or running up a flight of stairs.

Materials Needed:
meterstick
timer

Procedure:
1. Write the group members’ names in the first column of Table 1.

2. Enter each member’s weight in column 2. To solve for the weight, multiply the
mass (in kg) by acceleration due to gravity (g=9.8 m/s2).

3. Measure the height of the flight of stairs that you will climb. Record it on the
table.

4. Each member will walk or run up the flight of stairs. Use a stopwatch or
any watch to get the time it takes for each member to climb the stairs. Record the
time in the 4th column.
5. Solve for the energy expended by each member. Record them in the 5thcolumn
of the table.
6. Compute for the power output of each member
Q1. Who among the group members had the highest power output?

## Q2. What is the highest power output?

Q3. Who among the group members had the lowest power output?

## Q4. What is the lowest power output?

Q5. What can you say about the work done by each member of the group? Did each
member perform the same amount of work in climbing the stairs?
