Chapter 2 WebLab#1: “Distance, Velocity, & Acceleration Graphs” Notebook Section #9 * Go to the following website: http://ngsir.netfirms.com/englishhtm/Kinematics.htm * Play around with the drop down tab on the upper left hand side of the screen and run some trial simulations by pushing the “motion” button. Questions: * In the upper left hand tab, select “Simple accel.” Run the simulation by pushing the Motion button. 1) What type of shape is the distance vs. time graph? 2) What do you notice about the slope of the velocity vs. time graph? (Is it increasing or decreasing?) 3) What do you notice about the acceleration vs. time graph? Is there a slope? Is it positive or negative? Explain your answer * In the upper left hand tab, select “Simple decal.” Run the simulation by pushing the Motion button

Unformatted text preview: 4) What type of shape is the distance vs. time graph? Has it changed from the previous trial when you did a simple acceleration? 5) What do you notice about the slope of the velocity vs. time graph? (Is it increasing or decreasing) 6) What do you notice about the acceleration vs. time graph? Is there a slope? Is it positive or negative? Explain your answer. * Now in the drop down box, go to “Rise and Fall”. Run the simulation again. 7) Why does the slope of the velocity vs. time graph stay the same? 8) What do you notice about the acceleration vs. time graph? What does this tell you about the acceleration of an object due to gravity?...
