Lab Assignment SheetMotion in Everyday Life (Week 4)Model or Topic Explored: With what we’ve looked at so far in kinematics using the wheel and/or the accelerometer on the IOLab unit, we want to explore the kinematics of some everyday activity or a constructed activity in your home. Some examples are provided in the video, if you are unsure of where to begin. We are looking for a description of the kinematics similar to either the constant velocity or constant acceleration particle. We will also have a discussion board to post your ideas and results. Digital pictures of the setup and experiment will be greatly appreciated.Name: Amy MarchenDate:11/1/2017Observables:iOlab Unit, wheels that rotate, constant speed, how fast or how slow?, will the toy fall off or stay on the iOLab unit? Measureables:Length, Time, “Ry”, “Vy”, Position, Displacement Constants:Velocity of cartProblem Statement:How does position (dependent)depend on time (independent)fora constant velocity?Prediction:Position depends on time. This is constant velocity because when graphed postion vs time, the slope of the line is velocity. This is will be seen as (slope=m) the equation of m=v=d/t. In the positive y-direction, the slope will be positive. In the negative y-direction, the slope will be negative.
Experiment:Procedure, Tools, Diagram of Apparatus: [In this section, please paste a digital photograph of the items used in your experiment.]Tools:String, iOLab Unit, computer, table, and owl toyPHYS 1010 – page 1
