Part of understanding the physical world is learning to describe motion using graphs and equations. In this investigation, you will examine graphs and equations for an object moving at constant velocity. You will connect the values in the equations with the appearance of the graphs.


In this experiment, you will

  • Use video analysis techniques to obtain position, velocity, and time data for two videos of a cart moving on a track.
  • Examine graphs, vectors, and equations of the motion with the origin at different locations.
