Spring 2018 PHY 2400
First Lab on January 16, 2018
I looked at the motion detector and watched someone plug it in because it was dead. Then I played around with the motion detector and got it to run. Next, I watched and helped to make a a time vs. position graph which looked like a parabola.
The results for the graph are:
position at time 0s was .609m,
position at time .48s was .538m,
position at time 1.44s was .181m.
This lab is called Tapping Basketballs with Spitwad Lab. And what you do it in it is you get in groups then someone marks off every 5 tiles in the hallway. Then another person in the group taps a basketball with a meter stick at a constant rate so it accelerates at a constant pace. Then the person assigned to time the ball, at every second, yells then the other people in the group throw spitwads on the ground to mark where the ball was every second. Then you compare the distance and the time.
Second Lab on January 23, 2018
For Lab 2, you can find the lab report for our group on 006 account.
Third Lab on February 6, 2018
What I did, and the people in my group did, was we compared our reports from Lab 2 with a different group who did the same lab. Then we concluded that our group and the other group practically did the same exact lab minus the other group set theirs up a bit differently and got different results. Then the groups who did the Motion Detector Lab explained to our group what they did and how they did their lab. Then we edited Jan's Report on her Motion Detector Lab. And what we edited was we added a conclusion to her report, which her original one lacked. To find what we did, go to wright000.miraheze.org and under SandBox1 you can find our edit.
