VIEWS: 10 PAGES: 1

  • pg 1
									Question: What is the instantaneous velocity of a person at any given time?

Hypothesis: If we test the time of equaly spaced intervals then we can find the persons
instantaneous velocity.

Materials:
   1. Stopwatch
   2. Measuring tape
   3. Masking Tape

Procedure:
   1. Measure and mark 15 meters.
   2. Place students along the line at equal distances apart.
   3. Place a student at the start line.
   4. Begin timing when the person crosses the start line.
   5. Record the intervals.

Data:
   1. 2 People
         a. 4.6s @ 7.5m
         b. 9.38s @ 15m
   2. 3 People
         a. 3.48s @ 5m
