Julian Hart Physics 211 PY211 Lab 1 1. The data obtained in the first pre-lab helped me visualize the objects motion. The slope represents the velocity that the object. Since the slop remains constant because the best-fit line is linear means that the slope is constant through out the time and positions recorded. The Y intercept represents the initial position of the object when time is equal to zero. 2. As distance get further away from zero force gets smaller exponentially. The best fit line for this data is y = 51.371e -0.073x . The exponential best-fit line better represents the data when distance approaches infinity; however the logarithmic

Unformatted text preview: represents the data as distance approaches zero and thus they do not perfectly agree with each other. 3. The acceleration is equal to the derivative of velocity; in this case the graph of the velocity is linear so we can use the velocity to calculate acceleration. The acceleration is -1.52 m/s^2 which is not a reasonable answer compared to the acceleration of gravity which is -9.8 m/s^2. 4. To find the original velocity we used the equation from the best-fit line. The initial velocity is 3.2 m/s. 5....

    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.
