Jake Venditto ( Amanda S.) 10/13/09 Peroni Period 5 Car/Ramp Lab Car Ramp Lab Purpose: To measure and analyze the relationships between Distance and time, Velocity and time, and Velocity and Distance. Apparatus: 1) Ramp 2) Frictionless Car 3) 2 Text books 4) Speedometer 5) Computer Distance vs. Time: Independent Variable – Time Dependent Variable – Distance Velocity vs. Time: Independent Variable – Time Dependent Variable – Distance Velocity vs. Distance: Independent Variable – Distance Dependent Variable – Velocity Procedure: Distance vs. Time: Place car approximately 20 cm away from speedometer and the top of the inclined track. Then let car go down and the speedometer will calculate and graph the data. Velocity vs. Time: Place car approximately 20 cm away from speedometer and the top of the inclined track. Then let car go down and the speedometer will calculate and

Unformatted text preview: graph the data. Velocity vs. Distance: Place car approximately 20 cm away from speedometer and the top of the inclined track. Then let car go down and the speedometer will calculate and graph the data. Data: Distance vs. Time: D = .2529m/s t + 0.1226 m Corr. = 0.9990 D T 2 Velocity vs. Time V = 0.4105 m/s t – 0.01178 m/s Corr. = .9999 V T Distance vs. Velocity V = .9001 m/s D + 1.662 m/s Corr. = .9992 V D Conclusion: Acceleration = Final Velocity – Initial Velocity Time The meaning of the slope in the calculated equations is acceleration The y – intercept represents the initial distance or velocity depending on the relationship General Equations: Distance vs. Time: D = ½ A(m/s)T + D (m) Subscript i : initial Velocity vs. Time : Subscript f : final V = A(m/s)T + V (m/s) Distance vs. Velocity: V = 2A(m/s)T + V (m/s)...
