PHYSICS AP NAME: _________________ LAB WORKSHEET: CHAPTERS 2-4 PERIOD: _____ 1) Attach your data tables and graphs to the front of this sheet. Make sure your name is at the top of the very front page. You should have: a) Table: time, position, speed, and difference between instantaneous speed and final speed for sail cart b) Graph: speed vs. time for sail cart c) Graph: speed vs. position for sail cart d) Graph: difference between final speed and instantaneous speed vs. time for sail cart. NOTE: the final speed is the horizontal asymptote of the speed graphs…it is NOT the final speed in your data set. 2) Sail Cart:

Unformatted text preview: What do the graphs tell you about the mathematical relationships between position, velocity, and acceleration? How does acceleration depend on time? How does acceleration depend on velocity? How does acceleration depend on position? Be specific. Explain your answers. 3) A Cart in a Vacuum : Pretend you performed this experiment in a vacuum. What would be the mathematical relationships between position, velocity, and acceleration? How would these quantities depend on time? How would they depend on velocity? How would they depend on position? Be specific. Explain your answers....
