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?

What equation describes this shape? 2) Compare the first-half of the trip to the second half of the trip. Which takes longer to complete? Why? 3) What does a larger acceleration value do to the velocity-time graph? What does a larger acceleration value do to the position-time graph? 4) What does a larger initial velocity value do to the velocity-time graph? What does a larger initial velocity value do to the position-time graph? 5) What does a larger initial position value do to the velocity-time graph? What does a larger initial position value do to the position-time graph?...
