Objectives: Upon the completion of this lab activity the student will: 1. recognize the difference between velocity and acceleration. 2. complete correctly calculations involving velocity and acceleration. 3. explain how slope influences the velocity and acceleration of uniform objects. Problem: How does changing the angle of an incline influence the velocity and acceleration of an object rolling down it? Remember to make a HYPOTHESIS for this problem! Materials: incline (hot wheels track), protractor, timing device (second hand on clock or personal watch), meter stick, graph paper, notebook, rolling objects (marble/cars for track) Procedure: 1. Set up an inclined plane at an angle of 10 degrees with the horizontal. This incline should be at least one hot wheels strip. 2. Measure the exact length of the incline (hot wheels strip) in centimeters meters to the nearest tenth of a centimeter. 3. Taking your rolling object to the top of the incline, allow your object to roll down the
