Purpose: The focus of this experiment was to show that linear motion variables  could be broken down into motion variables. Procedure: The first step to beginning the lab was to capture the video of Lucy  swinging a pendulum. The camera captured the movement of the pendulum as it  swung up and then back to starting point. Then we followed all the steps to  analyze the video using the World in Motion software. The first kinetic motion that  we analyzed was the position vs. time graph. We looked at the graphs of both the  horizontal and vertical positions. Then we analyzed the graph of the velocity and  found the acceleration by looking at the slope. We also used the graph to  calculate the acceleration due to gravity. We found the magnitude and direction  of the velocity vector by resolving it into components. Next we looked at the
