Chapter 2 WebLab#2: “Motion with Constant Acceleration” Notebook Section #10 * Go to the following website: http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph14e/acceleration.htm * Read the instructions carefully * Run the simulation with an acceleration of 1.00 m/s 2 . Observe the motion of the car and the graphs of its motion. * Repeat with an acceleration of 2.00 m/s 2 . Identify differences in the motion of the car and in the graphs. * Repeat with an initial velocity of 5.00 m/s. Identify differences in the motion of the car and in the graphs. *Repeat with an initial position of 10.0 m. Identify differences in the motion of the car and in the graphs. Questions: 1) What is the shape of the curve in the acceleration-time graph? What equation describes this shape?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
