02_Ball_bounce.zip

PTC Creo has many applications in the teaching is science to demonstrate key concepts.

We created this analysis requested by a high school teacher to help them explain coefficient of restitution or how balls bounce. The zip contains a Creo assembly and instructions how to open the model, run the analysis and display a graph of height against time.

When we demonstrate this to other teachers a common question asked is; "How does this help me teach this concept?". Creo allows us to change the value for gravity so, we can bounce balls on the Moon, Mars or an asteroid.  All you need to know is value for gravity on that heavenly body.

The document in the zip file explains other models we have in this series. Can you think of concepts at middle or high school level that Creo models could help students investigate and teachers explain?
