Lab Assignment Sheet Exploring Constant Velocity (Week 2) Name: Anna Gierow Date: 02/09/2021 Observables: IOLab Unit – Orange w/lights Wheels rotate Constant speed How fast/slow Constants: Velocity of the chart Measureables: Length Time “Ry” “Vy” Position Displacement Problem Statement: How does position depend on time for a constant velocity ? Dependent: position Independent: time Prediction: How does position depend on time when an object is moving at a constant velocity? I predict that position will have a direct correlation with time. Since velocity will be a constant during this lab time will also be a constant and so will position. If there was variance in velocity then the slope of the position/time would change. Experiment: Testing how position and time correlate with constant velocity. The experiment is to collect data in order to model how position/time are correlated. Procedure: 1. Connect IOlab and begin program. Using a marker mark the starting point at which the IO cart begins. Mark an ending point at which you stop the run. 2. Start with IO cart run in the +y direction. Place IO cart at start mark. Press record to begin. Press stop recording once IO cart passes finish line.
