First Report: Spitball Lab 1/18/18[edit]

Supplies Utilized


Sphere

Spitballs (placeholders)

Tape (distance marker)

Yard Stick


Introduction

In the preformed lab, the students applied a constant force to a ball over an incremented distance (typically 3-5 feet). After each time measure (1 second) three separate spitballs are placed to improve the accuracy of the data collection process. In the end, the distance from the beginning to the distanced rolled after each time measure. A scatter plot is then produced from the collected data points generated. These data points are produced from plotting the time as an X value and plotting the Y value. The lab demonstrates the proper use of lab resources and applying concepts into useful skills.
