Motion Challenge!!!!

Try this PhysicsAviary assignment with a partner. You have to get all ten questions correct in order to be successful so take your time. Remember, direction matters for vectors!!

After successfully completing the challenge, take a screenshot of your final screen that says you did it and email it to me with you and your partner’s name.

As a reminder:

  • Velocity = displacement / time
  • Speed = distance / time
  • Speed is a scalar so it should not have a negative sign because the negative sign just tells us direction.

Intro to Video Analysis

We’ll be doing some video analysis in Capstone today. Woot woot.

 LAB REPORT: (in a Google Doc that you share with me.)

Part I: For the rolling ball video:

  • Was the ball moving at a constant velocity? Provide evidence from your video analysis. 

Part II: For the analysis of the video that you make with your partner:

  • Insert a screenshot of the horizontal position vs time graph.
    • What is the general shape of this graph? What does that mean?
    • What is the slope of the line? What does that mean?
  • Insert a screenshot of the vertical position vs time graph.
    • What is the general shape of this graph? What does that mean?
  • Insert a screenshot of the vertical velocity vs time graph.
    • What is the slope of this graph? What does that mean?
