DISCUSSIONS
I found out that the main of this experiment which is from the experiment I can say that the slope of the distance vs time graph is the velocity of the object the experiment graphs show certain properties which tells whether the object is moving in the negative direction or whether it is moving in the positive direction , if the object is at rest or if it is in motion. If the slope of the graph is increasing it means the object is moving away for the motion detector and if it is decreasing the person is moving towards the motion detector and if the slope is 0 the person is at rest

...accident such as car crash, since the momentum changes instantly, the force becomes extremely great. Impulsive force is produced during the collision and it will cause severe damage to the car, and may also injure the passengers in it. 3 The passengers’ momentum can be stopped by objects in the car such as dashboard, side door, or windshield, however, it will cause serious injuries because the force would be very great. To increase the safety of the driver and the passengers, safety devices such as seatbelts, air bags, crumple zones, and etc. are introduced. Safety devices such as seatbelts, air bags, crumple zones and etc are designed to reduce the forces on the body if there is a collision. These safety devices are mostly made based on the physics principle of force and momentum, which is
This relationship says that if momentum is transferred over a longer period of time, the force involved is less. If the force of a collision can be reduced, then the chances that someone would get hurt in an accident are lower.4 Since momentum cannot be transformed to another form of energy, it is always conserved during any collision. The change in momentum is then a fixed quantity, and to lower the force, changes have to be made in the time of the collision.5 The time required for the car to stop in a collision have to be increased so that the forces that will impact the occupant will be lower, and they will be less likely to be hurt. If the time taken for the change...

Abstract
This experiment measures the study of motion by observing the force of gravity acting solely upon an object, and also measures reaction time. If an object is in free fall, the only force acting upon it is gravity. The object used in this experiment was a golf ball that provided some acceleration when dropped. A sensor positioned underneath a table recorded the golf ball’s pattern of motion, when dropped. The main objective of performing this experiment is to measure the velocity and position of the ball to eventually find the acceleration of free fall. A computer program called, DataStudio, was used to create a graph of position vs. time and a graph of velocity vs. time. The second part of the experiment involved randomly dropping a ruler and having your partner catch it to determine reaction time.
Questions
1. The parabolic curves open upward instead of downward because of the golf balls movement over time: where it is dropped from, to where it ends up. The ball begins close to the sensor, then drops to the ground, then bounces back up closer to sensor again, therefore the bounces correspond with the bottom curves of the parabola. If the data were collected from the floor then the curve would open downward. But because the sensor graphs the position from the sensor, the curve was upwards.

...In physics, motion is a change in position of an object with respect to time and its reference point. Motion is typically described in terms of velocity, acceleration, displacement, and time.[1] Motion is observed by attaching a frame of reference to a body and measuring its change in position relative to another reference frame.
A body which does not move is said to be at rest, motionless, immobile, stationary, or to have constant (time-invariant) position. An object's motion cannot change unless it is acted upon by a force, as described by Newton's first law. An object's momentum is directly related to the object's mass and velocity, and the total momentum of all objects in a closed system (one not affected by external forces) does not change with time, as described by the law of conservation of momentum.
As there is no absolute frame of reference, absolute motion cannot be determined.[2] Thus, everything in the universe can be considered to be moving.[3]
Main types of simple motion
There are two types of basic motion: translation and rotation. Translation means motion along a path. Rotation means motion around a fixed axis. An axis is the centre around which something rotates. As we have mentioned before, each type of motion is controlled by a different type of force. Translation is defined by the net force (sum of different forces) acting on an object. Rotation is defined by torque. Torque is a force which causes the rotation of an object.

Introduction
Transportation has undoubtedly advanced. Not only have vehicles changed, but the means by
which people can get themselves to and from different locations has changed as well. Maps
and compasses now take a backseat to the Global Positioning System (GPS). Access to the
GPS is now very widespread; 24 satellites above our atmosphere are used to send and receive
information in order to accurately determine locations of objects to within 15 m of their actual
position.
If you have used a GPS, or even a mobile phone or satellite TV or radio, you have used some
of the nearly 300 artificial satellites that exist above our atmosphere to send and receive
information. Satellites are projectiles that, through our knowledge of force and energy, have
been launched into orbit. Because the earth curves downward by approximately 5 metres over
8000 metres along the horizon, satellites launched with a horizontal speed of 8000 m/s can
take orbit. At this speed, thanks to earth’s curved surface and a satellite’s constant horizontal
velocity, the satellites, which are in free fall once projected, keep falling toward the earth, but
always miss it. Thus, under the influence of gravity, satellites maintain motion in a circular
pattern at a uniform speed.
Most satellites are launched using rockets that fall to the ocean when their fuel is spent.
Sometimes a satellite may require minor...
