From Part 3 data recorded during your experiment, show how a v x -value at a given time is calculated from x-values recorded immediately before and after that moment in time, and write your calculated value in the appropriate space indicated below for easy comparison to the Logger Pro value given in the data table. Do this both for a) a positive value of v x . b) a negative value of v x . 2. Do the same as above in calculating a positive value of a x . 3. In a couple of sentences, explain how it is possible to sketch qualitatively correct v x and a x graphs corresponding to a graph of x vs. t simply given that x vs. t graph. 4.
