Lab Assignment SheetExploring Impulse-Momentum of Car Crashes (Week 11)Model or Topic Explored:In this lab, we will crash the IOLab unit into a solid object likea wall or sturdy book.We will introduce the concept of momentum and look at how itchanges during a crash.We will make use of the Force and Wheel sensors to collectdata to see how force, time, and momentum are related.Name: Amy MarchenDate: 1/12/18Observables: The iOLab unit bounces back, change in the iOLab units velocity, iOLabunit imparts force on the book, and the book imparts force on the iOLab unitMeasureables: Velocity, mass, force, and time of impactConstants: forceProblem Statement: How are momentum, force, and time related?Prediction: An impact (force) changes the velocity of the iOLab unit.The direction of the velocity changes after impact.Impulse (force applied over time) imparted on the iOLab unit changes momentum.Experiment:Procedure, Tools, Diagram of Apparatus: [In this section, please paste adigital photograph of the items used in your experiment.]Tools: iOLab unit, book, table, computer with iOLab softwareProcedure:1.Gather the tools needed for the experiment2.Set up a book on one end of the table (to use as a stopper)
3.Use the force and wheel sensors on the iOLab software to collect the data4.
