PHYS 15200 Mechanics IUPUI Physics Department Lab01: 1-d Kinematics Page 1 of 3 Lab 01: 1-d Kinematics OBJECTIVE In this experiment you will be using two different methods to determine the acceleration of gravity, g . You will then compare your measured values of g with the standard value of 9.8 m/s 2 . This experiment is adapted from Vernier Physics with Computers experiments using Logger Pro . EQUIPMENT computer dynamics cart Vernier computer interface rubber ball Logger Pro meter stick Vernier Motion Detector books (or blocks) ramp/incline ring stand with crossbar, clamps Figure 1 PART I – RAMP DATA 1. Connect the Motion Detector to the DIG/SONIC 1 channel of the interface. 2. Place a single book under one end of a 1 to 3 meter long board or track so that it forms a small angle with the horizontal. Adjust the points of contact of the two ends of the incline, so that the distance, x , in Figure 1 is between 1 and 3 m.

    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.
