Unformatted text preview: 3. Use the equation found to calculate the rod length at 48 o C Problem 2 The distance travelled (displacement) by an object moving with constant acceleration varies with the square of time. The displacement of an object is measured over a period of time and the resulting data is provided in the table below. Time (t) Displacement, s (m) 0.0 0.8 1.0 1.4 2.0 2.4 3.0 3.3 4.0 4.7 5.0 6.2 6.0 7.1 The displacement of the object is represented by the following equation. 2 2 1 at S S o + = where: S is the displacement of the object o S is the displacement at = t a is the acceleration t is the time You are required to do the following using Excel. 4. Plot S against t with the trendline equation. 5. Find the value of a using equation found. 6. Use the equation found to calculate the displacement at 10 seconds....
