Wheels

About this Laboratory:

In this laboratory, you will explore how the diameter of a wheel and its number of rotations affect the linear distance it travels. First you are asked to do an initial hands-on activity in the pre-laboratory to get a feel for what you will see in the applet. Then you will use technology to assist with further discoveries. Note that numbers given in the applet are approximations.
