Motion of a Toy Car

This Motion of a Toy Car worksheet also includes:

Using a windup toy car, young physicists explore motion concepts: origin, position, displacement, and velocity. Working in small groups, one member releases the car, another marks its position, and a third keeps time. After collecting data, velocity vs. time is plotted on a graph and the slope is calculated. Empty data tables, a graph, and ten analysis questions are included after the well-written procedure. You will appreciate this resource because it makes this classic experiment a breeze to carry out!
