Abstract: Reaction time can vary depending on many factors. If someone has practiced a  certain activity it will be a different reaction time that someone who has never  done it before. Age can play a major role on reaction time as well as environment  just to name a few. My reaction time was shorter with each trial.  In this  laboratory activity I used a meter stick and an assistant. We loosely placed the  meter stick on the V that my thumb and fingers form.  The plan is to have my  assistant let go of the ruler I was holding in between my fingers and thumb.  Without warned my assistant proceeded to let go of the meter stick and I reacted  by grabbing the meter stick as quickly as I could. We performed this activity three  different times, and each time it took less time to react. The first reaction gave me  an idea of what to expect for the next two trials.

We all have a different way of reacting to things, some people have faster reflexes  than others, or react in a completely different manner. If someone has been driving

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    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.
