E k E k v 2 v Sean Daehn Kinetic Energy Lab Report Purpose: to develop a conceptual and mathematical model for the energy stored in a moving particle. Apparatus: Procedure: we pulled back our cart in increments of one newton each time. Then we released it which transferred energy from my arm to the cart. We used the photogate to measure the speed it was moving. Then we graphed our data. Data: Mass (Kg) Stretch ΔX (m) Force (N) E s = 1 / 2 . X (J) Kinetic Energy E k J Δt (s) Velocity v= .02m/Δt Velocity 2 V 2 .509 .01 1 .005 .005 .139 .144 .021 .509 .02 2 .02 .02 .071 .282 .080 .509 .03 3 .045 .045 .046 .435 .189 .509 .04 4 .08 .08 .035 .571 .326 .509 .05 5 .125 .125 .029 .690 .476 .509 .06 6 .18 .18 .024 .833 .694 .509 .07 7 .245 .245 .022 .909 .826 .509 .08 8 .32 .32 .019 1.053 1.109 .509 .09 9 .405 .405 .016 1.250

Unformatted text preview: 1.562 Sean Daehn .509 .1 10 .5 .5 .015 1.330 1.769 Conclusion: Relationship: E k v 2 = DIRECT Model: E k =(.315 kg) . v 2 E k =( 1 / 2 m) . v 2 Slope: 1 / 2 mass of the particle Explanation: kinetic energy is directly related to velocity. If you double the velocity of a particle, its kinetic energy will increase by a factor of four. If you double the velocity, the stopping distance will increase by a factor of four. Model E k =( 1 / 2 m)v 2 kinetic energy is half of the mass times the velocity squared. The heavier a particle is the more energy it has, also, the faster it moves the more energy it has....
