Unformatted text preview: It has a positive slope, which means a positive acceleration. 10.Paste your graphs from Item 4 of the procedure here. Lab 3 ex4.ds 11.Is there a significant change in the velocity-time graph at the instant of closest approach? At the instant of closest approach the change is more gradual than significant. Phys310 Lab Page 1 Experiment 3 Physics 204 Experiment 3 continued 12.Make a straight-line fit of the velocity-time graph. 13. How does the average acceleration (slope) compare to the acceleration found in the previous item? The average acceleration is about half of the previous item. 14.Paste your graphs from Item 5 of the procedure here. Lab 3 ex5.ds 15.Fill in the table below.
