Physics 1020 Experiment 3 Prelab Questions These questions need to be completed (on scrap paper) before entering the lab. Once you begin the lab, write out the answers from your workings. You will be penalized if you are not prepared to answer these questions. Please show all workings. Prelab 1: For a falling ball, which bounces, draw the expected shape of the vertical position vs time graph. Prelab 2: From the position vs time graph of an object moving with constant acceleration, how could you find the velocity?

Physics 1020 Experiment 3 Part I: Introduction In this experiment you will study the motion of a falling ball which experiences constant acceleration. You will use a Motion Detector to measure the position of the ball as a function of time. The motion detector is connected to the computer through a LabPro interface and controlled using Logger Pro . You will use this combination of hardware and software to generate graphs of distance, velocity, and acceleration as functions of time.The goals of this experiment are: To represent the motion of an object through graphs of position, velocity, and acceleration versus time. To investigate the relationship between displacement versus time, velocity versus time, and acceleration versus time representations of a given motion.
