Tractor Laboratory

CONTEXT:

Physicists often study the motion of simple objects to help them understand the
laws of nature.

CHALLENGE:

Work in two groups to determine to the velocity of a toy tractor

RESOURCE TABLE:

Meter Stick
Stop Watch
Calculator

NOTES AND INVESTIGATION:

    Determine the velocity of a toy tractor in m s

DATA TABLE AND CALCULATIONS:

Displacement (m)            Time (s)

Plot the displacement time data on the graph below

Velocity (displacement vs. time)
Displacement (m)

Time (s)

y d d f  d i
Determine the slope of the resultant graph.   slope         
x t   t f  ti

What is the significance of the slope of the displacement vs. time curve?

Plot the data and create a displacement vs. time graph using Microsoft Excel
