Purpose To examine the relationship between velocity, time, and the final position using the average  speed of the object to find its instantaneous speed as well as to indicate the relationship of  acceleration and the angle of the plane using sine and gravitational acceleration.  Theory A. Motion of objects is expressed using velocity, acceleration, and position. Using linear  graphs and time as the independent we should get a relatively straight line due to  constant velocity making speed simple to find. B. Using a velocity versus time graph that are recorded relative to a start position we can  see that the difficulty in matching position as well as speed.  C. We are able to find the average speed of an object by taking the change in the distance  traveled by the time it took to travel that distance.  D. If the mass of an object is known then you will be able to calculate the acceleration due  to gravity down an inclined plane. Procedure
