Unformatted text preview: We will use a Pasco Motion sensor with the Pasco 750 interface. This will measure distance traveled at 50 times per second. Use both hands to hold the paper cone close to the motion sensor with the cone pointed downward. Reach out far so that the sensor sees the cone not you. Drop the cone and record its position vs. time in graphical form. Find the slope of the straight steep line, because during this time the cone is moving at a constant velocity, this will give us an average velocity. This should be done for three masses. One mass will be just the cone, then the cone plus a few paperclips, and then a mass of 10 grams plus the cone. From this we can calculate Results: Data can be found on the spread sheet included in this report. Conclusion: Based on what we have for graphs, they all have the same trend. With each graph, the energy increased as the weight increased; implying and direct relationship between weight/mass and energy....
