Apparatus: Procedure: We started at -10 meters and moved to the left. To set up our paper we made marks on the paper at increments of 1 meter. Then we started our car and made dots on the paper where the car was every 2 seconds. When we were done, we measured out how far the car went every two seconds. Data: Slow Car Time t,(s) 0 2 x,(m) -10 -10.4 Fast Car Time Sean Daehn 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 t,(s) 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 -10.95 -11.41 -11.77 -12.13 -12.88 -13.23 -13.65 -13.98 x,(m) -10 -11.18 -12.18 -13.00 -13.69 -14.18 -14.5 -15.26 -16.16 -16.95 Evaluation of Data: Stapled to back Conclusion: Sean Daehn Relationships: Slow Car- linear relationships Fast Car- linear relationships Models: xs = (0.223m/s) t-10m xf = (.386m/s) t-10m x=v.t+x0 Slopes: 0.223m/s= car moves at .223 meters per second. 0.386m/ s= car moves at .386 meters per second. Y- intercepts: -10m= point on graph where car started. Explanation: for a particle moving at a constant velocity, the relationship is always linear. For any given interval of time, the car always goes the same distance ...
