Continue working on the lab. Your goal should be to complete an adequate set of data points (both # of trials AND # of data points!) and graph them to determine a relationship. I will be checking for the assignment while you work.
Learning Goal: To understand the relationship between work and energy, and use it to predict the motion of objects
Today: Blowdart Challenge!
Given: Q-tips, large diameter straws, tape, metersticks or metric tape measures, timing devices
Find: Determine the relationship between the length of the straw and the exit speed of the dart. Support your conclusions with data tables and graphs (ON ACTUAL GRAPH PAPER!).
Extension: Calculate the acceleration of the Q-tip in the straw and the time the Q-tip spends within the straw.
