21 Water Accelerometer--Observing Acceleration By looking at a moving object you can easily see its position and have a sense of its velocity. Acceleration is harder. You will use a very simple accelerometer to see the effect of acceleration. A thin rectangular box is filled part way with water that may have added food coloring. Part I - Calibrating the Accelerometer 1. Place the accelerometer on the table. Sketch the water in the accelerometer when it is at rest. . What is

Unformatted text preview: the acceleration? Use the washable pen provided to mark the level of the water for this case. 2. Describe the water when the object moves at constant velocity. Does the direction of the velocity have any effect? Sketch the accelerometer and water level. What is the acceleration? 3. Describe the water when the object is accelerating to the right. (Push with your hand) Sketch the accelerometer. What is the direction of acceleration? 4. Describe the water when the object is accelerating to the left. Sketch the accelerometer. What is the direction of acceleration? You can think of the water as an arrowhead pointing in the direction of acceleration. Accelerate right Accelerate left...
