## Acceleration and Time Lab

The Velocity and Time Lab allows gathering velocity and time data that students can use to determine average acceleration, and estimate instantaneous acceleration using slopes of the graph. They can also estimate how far the cars have traveled by finding … Continue reading

## Velocity and time lab

The Position and Time Lab allows gathering position and time data that students can use to determine average speed, and estimate instantaneous speed using slopes of the graph. In this lab, we will work the opposite direction. We have only … Continue reading

## Matter & Interactions I: Modern Mechanics, by Chabay & Sherwood

Ruth Chabay and Bruce Sherwood are authors of Matter & Interactions I: Modern Mechanics. I was introduced to this text when I sat in on a few sessions of Physics 160 at the University of Michigan. The course was taught … Continue reading

We are acquainted with the two-dimensional coordinate-plane in algebra class. We learn about graphing equations that have an input (or dependent) variable , and this input variable is associated with the horizontal axis. By habit, we refer to this as … Continue reading

## Capturing g-force data with your phone and a computer

For the study of motion, we usually look at position versus time, and perhaps draw some inferences about velocity and acceleration. This is relevant to situations where we know position. In the real world, we might be more interested in … Continue reading
