RUNNING HEAD: Graph Matching and Motion on an Incline Graph matching T HE OBJECTIVE OF THE EXPERIMENT By plotting graphs, the student utilized one of the most effective methods for describing motion. The graphs plotted include position, velocity and acceleration vs time. The findings of the graphs served as a visual graphical representation to help determine the direction in which the object it is going, the speed it is traveling, and whether or not is it gaining speed slowly or quickly. The student used a motion detector 1 to determine the information needed to complete this experiment. The student used their own motion alongside with the motion of their lab partners also completing the experiment to determine their motion within the class room. Objectives: 1. Analyze the motion of the student and their lab partners walking across the room. 2. Predicting, sketching, and testing different kinematics graphs. M ATERIALS Computer Vernier computer interface Logger Pro Vernier Motion Detector Meter stick Masking tape P RELIMINARY QUESTIONS The student must match the position vs time graphs with its corresponding situation. 1 a motion detector measures the time it takes for a high-frequency sound pulse to travel from the motion to an object. the qualitative analysis of the graphs of the student’s motion will aid in the development of the students understanding in the subject of kinematics.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
