Lab Assignment Sheet Exploring Constant Acceleration (Week 3) Model or Topic Explored: We will be looking at the constant acceleration particle model using the IOLab unit. We will be using some of the basic features of the ‘wheel’ on the IOLab unit along with the accelerometer to explore displacement, velocity, and acceleration. Please refer to the pre-lab video for instructions. All answers and graphs may be added electronically. Name: Jenna Mueller Date: 1/10/2019 Observables: Red iO Lab Unit o Rolling down incline, starting from rest with an increase in acceleration Measureables: Position (x) – (Ry in iOlab) Time Instantaneous velocity (Vy in iOlab) Acceleration Constants: Initial velocity Slope of surface Problem Statement: How does position/velocity (dependent variables) depend on time (independent variable) ? How does velocity depend on position? How does velocity depend on time for constant acceleration?

Lab Assignment Sheet Experiment: Procedure, Tools, Diagram of Apparatus: [In this section, please paste a digital photograph of the items used in your experiment.] Tools: iO Lab unit, Computer, inclined plane on a flat surface (there are various ways to set this up, but if you use my method you will need books and a table) Procedure: 1. Gather necessary tools 2. Use binder to set under the tub on one end to create an inclined surface 3.
