THE SCIENCE BEHIND A YOYO

THE SCIENCE BEHIND A YOYO IS

  • Energy: potential, kinetic energy of movement, kinetic energy of rotation

  • Momentum: mass in motion, mass and velocity

  • Inertia: if at rest, inclined to stay at rest and if in motion, inclined to stay in motion

  • Gravity: gravity causes yoyo to start moving down

  • Friction: slows yoyo

  • Discussion of cause and effect
