Lab Assignment Sheet Motion 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: Jenna Mueller Date: 1/10/2019 Observables: iO lab unit with rotating wheels, constant speed, teddy bear being pulled Measureables: Change in position Change in velocity Displacement Time (Ry, Vy, Ay) Constants: Velocity of iOlab unit cart Problem Statement: How does an objects position, the dependent variable, depend on time, the independent variable, when the iOlab unit remains at a constant velocity? Prediction: Position will depend on time, and in the positive y-direciton, the slope will be positive. In the negative y-direction, the slope will be negative.
