Using Microsoft Excel to Explore Gravity Forces and Accelerations

Using Microsoft Excel to Explore Gravity Forces and Accelerations

This activity is a computer lab activity in which students use Microsoft Excel to create a spreadsheet capable of calculating gravity forces and acceleration values for any two objects if the masses of the objects and their separation distance are entered. Students will use their calculators to analyze numerous object pairs and make conclusions about gravity forces and accelerations on earth, on other planets, and in space.
