June 6, 2010 Title: LAB #2 Moving Man Lab Objective: The main purpose of this lab was to learn to accurately interpret and draw position, velocity and acceleration graphs and explain their reasoning’s. Procedure: I first opened the Phet website and clicked on the phet moving man simulations to start it. Once it was open I started to observe and learn how and why the simulation was behaving in a certain way. I then started to do question 2 by graphing what I thought the graphs should look like. I then, did the question 2 in the simulation; I typed in the position and the velocity of the man and clicked on the go button and observed what happed there and noted the graphs down. I then followed the instruction given and did the remaining questions. I finally looked at all of my graphs and started to understand more about the behavior of the graphs.

Data: 2.) Position- time graph Explain your reasoning for the graph’s appearance The graph starts at position -8 and moves in forward direction with an constant velocity and doesn’t stop in the way or even slow down. Velocity- time graph Explain your reasoning for the graph’s appearance The velocity is constant and therefore it has an constant horizontal line. The line has no slope. Acceleration- time graph Explain your reasoning for the graph’s appearance The line remains at zero because there is

    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.
