Graphs of Position, Velocity and Acceleration The use of graphs is very common in science, statistics, economic and etc; in physics the graphs are use to illustrate and compare quantitative data of motion, time, velocity, etc. The graph illustrates the trend accurately, also the trend can be use to predict future outcomes. Graphs are a useful tool to have a efficient description in less words. The Graphs of Position Graphs of position are a way to represent motion of an object or multiple objects in a graph using time and position. Time axis in a graph is used to measure motion in a specific time and position axis is used to measure distance. The time data and position data in a graph can be use to create a slope of time vs. position.…

As the height of the ramp increased, the speed, velocity, and acceleration also increased. In Run 1, the height of the ramp was highest at 5 textbooks. Evidence: The speed and velocity of the car in this lab are essentially the same because the total distance traveled is equal to the total displacement of the car. In Run 5, the ramp had the lowest height of one textbook. Using the slope of the position versus time graph, the speed of the car from Run 5 to Run 1 was calculated to 0.439 m/s, 0.745…

accuracy and the distance the ball travels is influenced by angular velocity. During an instep kick angular velocity is maximized first by the tight then by the shank and finally the foot. Angular velocity is the rate of angular position or orientation in line segment. A goniometer is used to measure segment angles and joint angles usually in static position but in…

1. C Why: according to Newton’s first law of motion, an object that is free from all outside forces travels at a constant velocity, covering equal distances in equal times along a straight-line path, C is true. 2. D Why: not matter an object is still or is in motion, the object has inertia all the time. Inertia is a nature/property of any objects. 3. D Why: the ship is moving at a constant speed, which is in a balanced status. For the athlete, it would be likely to do a long jump on ground.…

example, how an egg can survive a fall? It combine a majority aspect of physics, Velocity (both initial and final), Acceleration, Displacement, and Time to find how fast the egg within the vessel will go when drop from the top of a rail in the back of the school. Initial Velocity will determine the speed the egg left its initial position, the final velocity will determine the speed of the egg before crashing, Time (in Second) will tell how long the egg was in the air, Acceleration will tell how…

Accelerometer Specification CHAPTER 6 vibration measurement A number of transdures types exist for measuring machine vibration, including proximity, probe, velocity transducers, accelerometers etc. the measurement of machine casing acceleration is the most common method used for gear fault detection. This is normally achieved by mounting piezoelectric accelerometer externally on the machine casing, preferably near or on the gear housing, or on the portion of the casing where…

I. Ball on an inclined plane: Measuring motion We want to measure the motion of a ball that rolls down on an inclined plane and see whether this matches what we would expect. We will roll a ball down a tilted aluminum plate where gravity will accelerate the ball. It then rolls along a level surface (Plexiglas) where it should roll with approximately constant velocity as long as friction can be neglected. • Set up the experiment. Start by placing the large wooden board onto the…

The modification I made to this ride was that instead of being thrusted backwards, the cart has been turned around to accelerate forwards. The Tower of Terror is a new thrill ride, based on Earth’s Tower of Terror 2 ride at Dream world, Coomera. Where riders are accelerated forwards through a tunnel at an acceleration of 18.36 then passengers then travel 105m at a velocity of 55.08〖ms〗^(-1) before travelling vertically upwards 99.1 m. After experiencing complete weightlessness the car thrusts…

distance vs. time graph along with the velocity vs. time graph, accurately supports the hypothesis formed at the beginning of this experiment. From the interpretation of the first graph, the chart vaguely shows the changing velocity (acceleration) as well as positive velocity of the objects motion (as seen from the slight curve upwards). However, from another perspective, it might seem as if the diagram is showing a constant, positive velocity as the line is linear with no curved progression.…

Three tests are done through a Gizmo to determine how radius, mass, and velocity affects centripetal acceleration of an object undergoing uniform motion. The results show centripetal acceleration is affected by radius and velocity but not mass. It gives a better understanding to why objects in uniform motion accelerate towards the centre of a circle. Introduction The purpose of this lab is to determine how the radius, mass and speed of an object can affect the centripetal acceleration of the…
