  • Kinematics Graphs Hints about making a different kind of Kinematic Graph when you have one
  • Graph Clues Study Guide what the location of the curve on the graph means
  • Three Talking LiveScribe Tutorial available as a pdf that walks you through an example - but you may need to update your Adobe Reader which is free and turn your speakers on! SAVE the file to your computer rather than running it through google docs, otherwise it won't talk to you.

September 5th, 2014 Constant Velocity vs Accelerating Car Lab

If you had trouble printing out your Displacement-Time and Velocity-Time graphs in class email your teacher with a screenshot of the graphs and they will print it out for you. Below is a stock graph you can use if you cannot get your own. The point of this lab was to see the connection between the Displacement-Time and Velocity-Time graphs for each of the two types of motion.
