Lab Assignment Sheet
Exploring Constant Velocity (Week 2)
Model or Topic Explored:
We will be looking at the constant velocity particle model
using the IOLab unit.
We will be using some of the basic features of the ‘wheel’ on the
IOLab unit to explore displacement and velocity.
Please refer to the pre-lab video for
All answers and graphs may be added electronically.
Length, Time (independent variable), Ry, Vy, Postiiton (dependent variable),
IO Lab Unit, Wheels rotating on the IO Lab Unit, Constant Speed, How fast/slow must
we move the device?
Constants: Velocity of the cart
How does position (dependent) depend on time (independent) for
a contant velocity?
