Robert Crescenzi 9/24/10 Lab #109 Write-up Lab #109: One Dimensional Motion- Velocity as a Function of Time and Distance at Constant Acceleration Objective: -To measure the constant acceleration of an object moving on an inclined plane by several different analytical methods using two types of apparatus (photo gat and motion sensor); -To get more familiar with one-dimensional motion; -To apply Newton’s Second Law. Background: -When an object moves with constant acceleration, its velocity as a function is given by: v = ( v 0)^2 + at; Where v0 is the initial velocity (at t = 0), v is the velocity of the object at x and a is the constant acceleration. -The velocity of the object as a function of distance is given by: V^2 = (v0)^2 + 2a(x-x0); Where v0 is initial velocity (at x0), v is the velocity of the object at x and a is the constant acceleration. Equipment: -Computer with ULI (or Labpro) interface x1 -Air track unit with compressor x1 -Wooden block to lift the air track from one side x1
