Speed and Collisions Administration Procedures

Students investigate speed as an important variable regarding force of an impact. Students roll a car down a ramp and into a block of wood. The distance the car travels, the time until impact and the distance the block moves are recorded. The speed of the car is calculated by dividing the distance by the time until impact. The experiment is performed twice and averaged for the two.
