Mechanical Equivalent of Heat

This lab replicates the conventional lab with the cardboard tube and lead shot, but without the pesky wildly incorrect results that seem to plague the more conventional lab. Students flip the tube to transform gravitational potential energy into thermal energy, measuring the temperature change with a simulated infrared thermometer. The activity guide below is yours to copy for educational use.
