Exercise No. 1
Title: DETERMINATION OF PACE FACTOR
I. OBJECTIVE
To let the student be familiar with the Pace factor its computation and uses by means of a field activity. II. PROCEDURES
1. Measure a horizontal distance of 55m.
2. Cover the measured distance by walking, count and record the number of paces in a trial. 3. Do the second procedure by seven trials.
4. Tabulate the gathered data accordingly and calculate the pace factor. III. EQUIPMENTS USED

VI. CALCULATION
Given:
*Tabulated Data
To compute for the Average Pace:
AP=(x1+ x2+ x3+ x4+ x5+ x6+ x7)/n
=(75+77+74+72+70+71+70)/7
AP=72.7 paces approx. 73paces
To compute for the Pace Factor:
PF=TP / AP
=55m/73paces
PF=0.75m/pace
VII. OBSERVATION
Every individual varies in paces.
The variation depends on the size of the individual or the way he/she walks. A certain individual can cover a certain distance in a few numbers of paces while some can do oppositely. VIII. CONCLUSION

Several factors can affect the pace of a single individual, it could be either due to the size of the individual itself or maybe because of the way he/she walks. These factors do definitely affect the value of the pace factor. The lesser the pace the greater the pace factor, the greater the pace the lesser the pace factor.
