Inertia Lab Person 1 name: Michelle Portocarrero Person 2 name: Katie Chock Person 3 name: Giovanny Alvarez Person 4 name: Lauren Huso Problem: How does traveling down inclined planes (ramps) of different angles affect the distance an object flies when suddenly stopped at the bottom of the ramp? Hypothesis: If, then, because (2-3 sentences) Person 1: If the car is going down an inclined slope at a high speed, then the car will gain speed more quickly due to inertia. Person 2: If the car is traveling down an inclined plane at a high speed, then the car will travel a greater distance because of inertia. Person 3: If an object is traveling down an inclined plane with a steep slope at a high speed and then suddenly stopped, then the object will travel a further distance then if the inclined plane was less steep. Because the object will be traveling at a high speed but continue to travel that speed once the car crashes.

Person 4: If the car is traveling down an inclined ramp at a high speed, then the car will travel at a greater speed as a result of inertia. Materials: ramp, toy car, eraser, textbooks, meter stick 1. Create a ramp using books to form an inclined plane. 2. Measure the height of the end of the ramp using a meter stick. 3. Place a textbook at the end of the ramp to stop the cart. 4. In the dynamic cart/toy car place an eraser or other small object to be launched 5. Place the cart/car at the top of the ramp and release. 6. Measure the distance that object flies once it hits the book. 7. Repeat a total of three times and for each of the ramp heights.

    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.
