INDEPENDENCE OF DIMENSIONS LAB tinyurl.com/fluckiger1
OBJECTIVE: Use technology to analyze the motion of an object that is moving in two dimensions.
DESIGN: 1. Videotape a projectile object that is moving in both the x and y dimensions.
2. Use LoggerPro to create a motion map for the object.
3. Draw and analyze the graphs that form in the x and y dimensions. (separately)
*All measurements are taken from the toes of the boy shooting the ball.
DATA COLLECTION: 1. Sketch the MOTION MAP for the projectile object. (This is a series of numbered dots.)
2. Sketch the POSITION graph in the xdimension.
3. Sketch the VELOCITY graph in the xdimension.
4. Sketch the POSITION graph in the ydimension.
5. Sketch the VELOCITY graph in the ydimension.
DATA ANALYSIS: 1. Under each of your graphs, describe in words what the graph is showing about the object.
2. Record the slope of the YVELOCITY graph. What is it? Why is this number important? What is it telling us?
CONCLUSION: 1. Did gravity have any affect on the horizontal motion of the projectile?
2. Does it appear that the two dimensions have any effect on each other?
EVALUATION: Do you trust your results? Were there any problems I should be aware of?
