would you like the project on a posterboard?

Sterling, no just answer the questions and complete the charts. The graphs are extra credit

I dont understand numbers 1 and 3 on how they are asking the questions....do you think you can reword them and tell me what they are asking me please?


1. How do your measured & calculated values for the "unknown distance" compare?

3. Is the average speed related to the maximum or minimum speed of the person? explain why you think so. This is part 2 of number 3

@ Vivian,

the question is asking you to compare and contrast the calculations for the unknown distance to the actual unknown distance. You will have to measure the unknown distance after you complete your activity and see if the numbers you calculated were close to the actual measurement. For #3 it is asking you how the minimum and maximum speed relates to the average speed and why you believe your answer. Let me know how it goes

What should we graph??? for the project
Is there anything else on the test that I missed?
What was impulse?? i didnt understand that completely

@ Ashleigh and Ciara www.metric-conversions.org

@ Vivian, graph each "runner" distance vs time. For the test you have all of the definitions. For impulse that is p= Ft
or p= mv

@Matthew, the project really needed to be done by now, but you need to have yourself and 2 other individuals complete an activity and measure the distance and time each individual the calculate the velocity for each. You will also have to answer the questions and complete the activity for an unknown distance. See the project I uploaded.

I did but I only had one person to do the project with. Is that ok?

Do I round 3.96 to 4.?

Mrs. James

I am still trying figureout how to do the science homework. but I still do not understand. so I did the ones I could do.
