Physics 310 Experiment 2 There and Back: Concepts of Motion DATA SHEET Name: __________________ Date: ___________ 1. Paste the first position-time graph below: 2. Describe the difference between a position-time graph made by walking slowly away from the sensor and one made by walking away quickly . 3. Describe the difference between a position-time graph made by walking slowly away from the sensor and one made by walking towards the sensor slowly. 4. Paste the position-time graph with your prediction for Item 16 below. 5. Is your prediction the same as the final result? If not, describe how you would move to make a graph that looks like your prediction. 6. Paste the first velocity-time graph below: 7. What is the most important difference between a velocity-time graph made by slowly walking away and one made by quickly walking away? 8. How are the velocity-time graphs different for motion away and motion towards the sensor?

If not, describe how you would move to make a Phys310 Lab Page 1 Experiment 2 Physics 204 Experiment 2 continued graph that looks like your prediction. 11. Place the graphs from Item 19 below: 12.What is the average velocity that you calculated from the velocity-time graph? 13. Record the equation of the fit that you found from the position-time graph? Compare the slope with the average velocity recorded above. 14. What is the meaning of the y-intercept from the fit? 15.How can you tell from a velocity-time graph that the moving object has changed direction? What is the velocity at the moment the direction changes? Phys310 Lab Page 2 Experiment 2...
