The purpose of this lab is to validate the law of conservation of momentum.
The materials required for this lab are three balls of different mass, meter stick, rods
clamps, scale, speed sensor, and sand.
The mass of each of the thre

1. What is the specific shape of the position-time graph?
The specific shape of the position-time graph is a parabola. The distance of the vehicle is
directly related to the square of the time passed.
2. What type of motion does having a curved graph for
What is the interpretation of the displacement-time graph?
The displacement-time graph takes the shape of half of a parabola going in a negative
direction. The object moves in a negative direction as time increases. Because the

The following table shows the diameter and circumference, both in centimeters, of the fifteen
circular objects measured.

The purpose of this lab is to obtain a relationship between the diameter and
circumference of fifteen circular objects measured by graphing the data taken for each object.
The materials required for this lab are a ruler, tape measure,
The purpose of this lab is to determine the centripetal force acting on a motorized vehicle.
The materials required for this lab are a motorized vehicle, masking tape, spring scale,
string, pole, timer, and base.
1. As more measurements are made, the calculations become closer and closer to each other.
This is shown in the graph: during the first half of the total drops, the calculations are
erratic, shooting sharply up to 9.0 and then decreasing rapidly. However,
The purpose of the lab is to analyze accelerated motion using multiple graphing methods
The materials required for this lab is a sponge, meter stick, 1-kg mass, string, table clamp,
pulley, timer tape, ruler, regular (b
