Physics 111A-021 Mario DeLaPaz, Shyeesan Indran, Kennedy Tavarez, Gary Alva September 15, 2010 Professor Kui chen Objective: In this laboratory we used a motion detector to create distance x vs. time t and velocity v vs. time t graphs of various forms of motion. Theoretical background: The distance x is expressed as x = x 0 + vt for v = constant. The plot of x vs t is a straight line with v being just a slope and x 0 being an intercept. Average Velocity = v Avg (total displacement) x/ (total time) t. See pages attached for graphs. Distance Dx made during a time Dt is equeal to the area on the graph v vs t. To find the total area from time t to T you have to integrate vdt from t to T. See pages attached for graphs. Dx 1 = v 1 Dt 1 is positive, Area Dx 2 = v 2 Dt 2 is negative Equipment: 1. Meter stick 2. Motion detector 3. Computer 4. Stand 5. Universal Laboratory Interface Procedure: Start by connecting the motion detector to Port 2 of the Univeral Laboratory Indicator.
