Time. The time axis should have a maximum value of 3 seconds. If your
graph does not look as expected, consult an instructor now. Physics 1020 Laboratory #5 Momentum and Impulse The Collision
In this experiment, you will push one cart towards a second, stationary cart.
They will collide, stick, and move together. vf v1i

window. Wait for the motion
detector to make a clicking noise. Apply a gentle push to the cart with
the card attached. It should hit the
stationary cart and they should
stick together. Inspect your graph. It should
resemble the graph shown here.If it
does not, repeat the experiment. If
you are not satisfied with the
appearance of your graph after 10 15 attempts, consult an instructor. Physics 1020 Laboratory #5 Momentum and Impulse Data Analysis Examine your graph and think about how the motion of the carts are
represented on the graph. QUESTION 1: Sketch your graph. Describe what happens to the velocity
of the carts and how this is represented on the graph. On the sketch of
your graph, identify the point where the collision occurs and circle it. Have an instructor check your graph and initial your Laboratory
Worksheet. Physics 1020 Laboratory #5 Momentum and Impulse Determining Velocities To determine the velocity before the collision, click and drag your mouse
to highlight the 10 points immediately before the collision. Click on
Analyze, then Linear Fit. A box will pop up displaying the slope and
intercept. Double click on this box and check the box marked standard
deviation for slope to get your experimental uncertainty. Enter your
