In nature most elements occur as a mixture of two or more isotopes. Eachisotope of an element has a fixed mass with a natural percent abundance. The mass of theelement needs to reflect the masses of these isotopes in their respective abundances. Giventhe masses and abundances, how is the Average Atomic Mass determined?
In this activity, you will determine the atomic mass of the fictitous element Candium.

Cardboard Automata are a playful way to explore simple machine elements while creating a mechanical sculpture. This activity was inspired by the Cabaret Mechanical Theatre, a group of automata builders based in England. Artists like Paul Spooner, Keith Newstead, and Carlos Zapata build beautiful narrative pieces using elegant mechanisms based on cams, gears, springs, and linkages. Working with simple materials, this activity is easy to get started, and may become as complex as your mechanical sculpture ideas.

This lab activity is designed to allow students to experience what an increase in mechanical advantage means. Students determine the mechanical advantage of three pulley set-ups. Students also measure the work input and output, then calculate the efficiency. Finally, students determine the relationship between the mechanical advantage and the efficiency of the pulleys.
