Spring 2017 phy2400
FIRST REPORT THU 18 JANUARY 2018 SPITWAD
START HERE In this physics lab we marked every five tiles in the hallway. In this lab we rolled a basketball down the hallway by accelerating it at a constant rate by using a yard stick. we designated jobs to different people. With one job being in charge of the stopwatch. Then the other people make spit wads. The spit wads were used to mark were the basketball was at different points in time. Then after everyone threw their spit wads we measured the distance of the best spit wads. Then we made a scatter plot and put in a line of best fit.
