Objective:We are trying to find the velocity and slope of the given distance on the air track. The movement of an object and how fast or slow it is, is velocity.Physical Principles:VelocityVavg=dtSlopex=vt+xoExperiment procedure: 1.Set up the air-track and put it on pulse and reset the timer to zero.2.Put the photogates on the distance given to you on the data table.3.Launch the glider from one end.4.Record the time.a.Record the time, THREE times.b.Calculate the time average.c.Calculate the velocity.5.Reset.6.Repeat steps 2 to 5 until you reach a distance of 100 cm.Laboratory Data and Calculation: See Attached TableConclusion:This experiment was to cover what velocity is and how it works. Velocity, which means speed, fast, slow, rate of change over time/distance over time. To see how velocity works, using the air
