  1. Lab 1Introduction to Motion Page 1 Department of Physics & Astronomy

  2. Purpose Analyze your own motion using a motion sensor to learn about the following: Position-time graphs Velocity-time graphs The relationship between both graphs The relationship between the shapes of these two graphs to how the objects move Page 2 Department of Physics & Astronomy

  3. Equipment Logging in and out of lab computers Log in as “labuser” (no password necessary) Log out at the end of your lab, but leave the computer on. Pasco 750 Interface Leave these interfaces “on” (green light at the front is on). Page 3 Department of Physics & Astronomy

  4. Equipment Motion Sensor Both plugs go into the 750 Interface – yellow into port 1, and the black into port 2 The slide switch has two settings (wide and narrow angle detection); the wide angle works best Software – Capstone You can open the Capstone activity from the website. Open today’s lab activity, “Introduction to Motion.cap” Page 4 Department of Physics & Astronomy

  5. Hints Hints for Getting Good Graphs Hold a lab manual or book in front of your chest while moving. This creates a flat surface for the sound coming from the detector to bounce off of. Be sure you have enough room to move around! To do this, you may need to aim your sensor into the middle of the room, or into a corner. Please don’t aim your sensor into another group either! Use the Capstone tools to rescale your graph axes or to read out data points. Page 5 Department of Physics & Astronomy

  6. General class policies Homework Policies Homework needs to be done before doing the lab activity. Lab Report Policies Have the supervising teacher sign and date/time your lab report before you leave the lab. Turn in the lab report to your high school teacher.
