Imagine a pool ball rolling briskly along on a flat, level track for a distance of less than a meter.
In this activity, you will
- Predict what a graph of the ball’s position vs. time (or x vs. t) will look like.
- Use Logger Pro video analysis tools to analyze a digital video clip of a rolling ball to test your prediction and find the speed of the ball as a function of time.
