Phys 1010 Q
Myth: Physics is
Reality: Physics is
study of everything
discovering the unknown
both body of knowledge and a creative process for producing new information
Emily Kapner and Mary Cate Carroll (we worked together because of computer malfunction)
a. Slope: 1.397m/s
b. Slope represents velocity of the car
c. The velocity graph shows a generally consistent velocity as does the position versus time
y= A*t^2 +B*t+C
a. For the first graph, my prediction was fairly accurate for this graph. I predicted a parabola that
opened downwards as in the actual graph. However, I drew a wider p

Blood Stains in the Hallway Lab
The goal of this lab was to recreate a crime scene to figure out what kind of crime happened
with reference to the blood spatter found in the hallway.
Lab report-Experiment#13 Elastic Collision and velocity
The purpose of this experiment was to see the effect of velocity of the moving
car has on the energy and the momentum of the system,

2. Conservation of Momentum
Explaining Linear Momentum
Word momentum is used in the daily life in more or less the same meaning as in physics. A massive

1. Newtons Second Law of Motion
In the previous lecture we have learned that if an object is acted upon by a net force, then it
Newtons First Law of Motion
Galileo was the first to suggest that constant-speed; straight-line motion was just as
natural as at-rest position.
This property of remaining at
Lecture # 2
What is Motion?
Earth moves round the sun
A player kicks a ball
A swimmer swims across the swimming pool.
Imagine driving home from school.
For simplicity, assume that you can drive home in a straight line
y=0.448t^2 + 0.268t + 0.089
y= 0.897t + 0.259
y= 0.175t^2 + 0.318t + 0.058
y= 0.357t + 0.313
i.) The cart took less time to reach the end of the track. This does match my prediction.
ii.) The cart begins with potential energy and that
