Experiment 5: Modeling Motion in Two Dimensions
BACKGROUND
In this lab, you will videotape an object moving in two dimensions, and try to predict the
x- and y- position graphs of its motion. Then you will use VideoPoint to analyze

Experiment 4: Modeling Motion in One Dimension
OVERVIEW
In physics, equations of motion (including the kinematic equations you have learned) are
mathematical models for motion. That is, they represent an idealized view of how

Experiment 3: Vector Forces
BACKGROUND
If forces are vectors, they should add like vectors. You are going to investigate this by
looking at situations where three forces are in equilibrium; that is, they will add up to a
net force
