                                             UNIFORM RECTILINEAR MOTION (KINEMATICS)

   A. Basic Theory
      Uniform Rectilinear Motion (URM) : an object moves with constant velocity (constant speed and direction).. Relations between
      displacement (x), velocity (v) and time (t) in the uniform rectilinear motion is:




       v = velocity (m/s)
       x = displacement (meter)
       t = time (second)

   B. Purpose
           Describe the definition of some quantities in motion.
           Analyzing the physical quantities in uniform rectilinear motion

   C. Steps of experiment
      (It takes precision and accuracy in measurement)
           1.    Prepare equipment that supports the virtual laboratory experiment.
           2.    Calculate the time required for the green ball do 5 times collision. Write down the measurement in the tables provided. Do the
                 experiment 3 times.
           3.    Do steps 2 for blue balls. (Do distribution tasks to each group member)

   D. Discussion
         1.   Table of measurement results. Then calculate velocity and average velocity.
