Introduction:
This portfolio will investigate how to create an equation that has a line of best fit for a given set of data. The points given will be plotted to see if there is a recognizable regression formed. In order to find the right regression equation, different regression equations will be tested with the data points provided. The process of finding the right equation and the testing of points will be provided. Each set of points and equations formed will include a graph. Once the best equation is formed it shall be tested to see if it fits the next set of data points. Once plotted, comments shall be made.

Horizontal G-Force:
Here is a table of horizontal G-force tolerance in humans. “+Gx” represents the horizontal acceleration, which means +Gx of 11 means that at 1 minute, humans can tolerate a horizontal acceleration of 11. + Gx (g) (x)| Time (min) (y)|

The data is arranged from highest force/lowest time, to lowest force/highest time. By looking at the chart, humans can withstand a lower G-force for longer periods of time. As time increases, the G-Force (or horizontal acceleration) decreases, and vice versa. These points were plotted on a graph where acceleration is the x axis, and time is the y axis. There are only 8 points represented which may not be an accurate regression. Since the values are not spaced out in even intervals, so the graph cannot be linear.

The data seems to create an asymptote when the force reaches 35. It makes sense that humans tolerate a lower force for a longer time, and a higher force for a shorter period of time. It can be assumed that as the force or +Gx increases, time will decrease. This graph looks similar to an exponential graph, so a function will be created to see if an exponential function most accurately fits this graph.

...In every industry, there is a model that can be used to identify the strategy, profitability, and power of particular companies. This model is called the five forces model. This gives an analysis of companies for competing and personal uses. The five forces model consists of two major parts. The first part of the model consists of rivalry among existing firms, threat of new entrants, and threat of substitute products. This part measures how much actual and...

...Force & Motion
Isaac Newton – English physicist & mathematician.
Newton’s First Law of Motion(Law of Inertia):
An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalance force.
An object at rest tends to remain at rest. An object in motion tends to move at a constant speed in a straight line unless acted upon by an unbalanced external...

...HYDROSTATIC FORCE (EXPERIMENT 1)
INTRODUCTION
The determination of force which are exerted by liquid which are at rest on surface immersed in liquids. From the study by hydrostatic, the following principles have been established :
a) There are no shear stress present when the fluid is not in motion.
b) The pressure exerted by a fluid under hydrostatic conditions. This pressure acts perpendicular to an immersed surface.
c) Hydrostatic pressure...

...Definition of Force
A force is a push or pull upon an object resulting from the object's interaction with another object. Whenever there is an interaction between two objects, there is a force upon each of the objects. When the interaction ceases, the two objects no longer experience the force. Forces onlyexist as a result of an interaction.
Velocity, Acceleration, Momentum, and Impulse
Velocity, in physics, is a...

...IB PHYSICS HL
Lab: Centripetal Force
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE:
*In this section of your lab write-up, be sure to include all equations and
background information
-For motion along a straight line, a constant net force F acting on a body of mass m produces a constant acceleration a, related to the force through Newton's law:
F = ma
-When the same object is moving in a circle at a constant speed, the acceleration of the object is given by the...

...A ball is thrown upward at time t=0 from the ground with an initial velocity of 18 m/s (~ 40 mph). Assume that g = 10 m/s2.
Time to reach apex 18/10 = 1.8
Time x 2 = 3.6
Great height reached by ball – (Velocity)(time)+(-5)(time^2)
18x1.8+(-5)(1.8^2)=16.2
A model rocket accelerates upward from the ground with a constant acceleration, reaching a height of 63 m in 8 s.
* Speed at height 63 - 2x63/8 = answer What is the acceleration= answer/8

...Universal Gravitation
Apples had a significant contribution
to the discovery of gravitation. The
English physicist Isaac Newton
(1642-1727) introduced the term
"gravity" after he saw an apple
falling onto the ground in his garden.
"Gravity" is the force of attraction
exerted by the earth on an object.
The moon orbits around the earth
because of gravity too. Newton later
proposed that gravity was just a
particular case of gravitation. Every
mass in the universe attracts every...
