Unformatted text preview: recorded i.e. for example, [2.12 s +2.16 s +2.09s] /3 = 2.12 s . T² was determined by squaring the meantime, i.e. [2.12s ]² = 4.49s ² . Average velocity was calculated by taking the distance over meantime for each trial, i.e. 1m/2.12s = 0.47m/s. Angle of the inclined plane was measured utilizing trig function, tan = opposite/adjacent while solving for i.e. . The slope of graph i.e. 0.25 m/ s² was determined by the linear regression equation on graph using y = mx + b. Acceleration from slope of graph was determined by a = 2 * m i.e. 2 *0.25 m/ s² = 0.49 m/s² ....
