Drew Rasmussen Kristin Blalock Carpool (take-home make-up lab) Theory: By using kinematic equations, acceleration can be found by manipulating the equations to come up with a = 2x/t 2 . This will give the acceleration in mi/s 2 which will later be converted to mph/s with dimensional analysis. By analyzing a chunk of the population at an intersection of known distance, students will be able to calculate a rough estimate to display the average commuter-miles per gallon for a certain vehicle type. This will be done based on the number of different vehicles seen, the number of passengers per car, and an approximation of city mpg for a certain class of vehicle. By calculating averages and creating graphs, students will be able to identify common trends in data and determine which Class of car provided the best commuter- miles per gallon. Procedure: 1. The intersection at Cloverdale and Lake Hazel (Boise, Idaho 83709) was measured going north to south.
