The Physics 500 Anthony Petrillo 1 September 2011 The purpose of this lab is to demonstrate that speed is equal to distance divided by time and to show that after determining average speed, it is possible to determine a distance by multiplying the average speed by time. We will accomplish this by running backward over a known distance and recording our times, running backward over an unknown distance and recording our times, and performing the required calculations. This will reinforce what we learned in class about determining speed and how speed relates to distance and time. The data will allow us to determine our average speeds, and the unknown distance, although there will be a certain amount of error involved due to many factors. Data * indicates an extreme value that has been omitted from the calculations.

Average speed is equal the distance traveled divided by the time interval for the motion. Average speed is affected by instantaneous speed. It is the average of all of the
