We found the average by using the formula (Trial 1 +Trial 2 + Trial 3)/3, and example would be (0.4663+0.454+0.4664)/3 = (1.3867)/3 = 0.4622 seconds. Graphs - The graphs (stapled on the back) all display that the ball moves at a constant acceleration. 4 book x-t graph: P= 32.38cm/s2 (t) + 6.012cm

7 book v-t graph: V= 52.19cm/s2 (t) + 54.74s
7 book x-t graph: P= 55.09cm/s2 (t) + 4.948cm
4 book v-t graph:
The position vs. time graphs’ (x-t) slopes represent velocity. Obviously, 7 books will have a higher velocity than 4 books, thus having a larger slope (32.38cm/s2 vs. 55.09cm/s2). The y-intercept represents the place where we started the ball on the ramp. The velocity vs time graphs’ (v-t) slopes represent acceleration. To find instantaneous velocity, you have to find the slope of all the points on the v-t graph and use the slopes of all the points as the points in the acceleration vs. time graph. Conclusion – In this lab I have learned that an object going down an incline will accelerate at a constant rate and moves faster every second. The position vs. time squared graphs’ equation is ½ the slope of the acceleration vs. time graph because you have to use time...

...Experiment 1.7: Graphical Analysis of Motion
Introduction
To graphically analyze motion, two graphs are commonly used: Displacement vs. Time and Velocity vs. Time. These two graphs provide significant information about motion including distance/displacement, speed/velocity, and acceleration. The displacement and acceleration of a moving body can be obtained from its Velocity vs. Time graph by respectively finding the area and the slope...

Purpose: To determine both qualitative and quantitative properties of the motion of a cart on an inclined plane on position vs. time, velocity vs. time and acceleration vs. time graphs.
Question: Which properties of the cart’s motion can be determined from examining each of the three graphs?
Hypothesis: The predictions on the type...

Abstract
The processes of a cart rolling up and returning back along a track were recorded, and the processes (motion of the cart.) were described as equations. Also, we calculated the accelerations of every stage (aup, adown and ahighest). Then the relationship among aup, adown and ahighest was concluded. Finally,...

...Abstract
In this lab experiment the range equation will be used to calculate range of the launched rocket, initial velocity and distance traveled. Various projectiles will be tested at various angles and table heights for experiment one. Results will be compared to initial calculations. Despite human error and calculation error, the results still correlated with the hypothesis.
Introduction
Background
Acceleration is constant at 9.8 m/s2 because of the force of gravity....

6) Now click on ‘Circular’ on the bottom. Describe the motion of the ball and the behavior of the two vectors. Is there a force on the ball? How can you tell? Be detailed in your explanations.
The ball is moving in a circulation motion. The vectors remain constant even though there is still force exerted on the ball. Since the ball is accelerating towards the...
