Buggy Lab Abstract The speed of a buggy traveling a meter was solved using a distance/time formula. A small toy buggy traveling 1 meter takes approximately 2.3 seconds. Using the formula distance/time for the calculation 1/2.3 = 0.4, I found that the velocity of the buggy is 0.43mpsN. Description of Experiment: In this experiment we started out by finding a distance to measure, thus coming to the conclusion of 1 meter. Following the first step we had to determine the displacement of the buggy. The third part to use the velocity formula to calculate the overall speed the buggy was traveling while in motion using the formula The velocity of the moving buggy was the speed in which the buggy was traveling. The buggy had a electric battery operated motor that played a huge role in the experiment due to the lack or excess of battery power in the motor. The buggy was blue and had a red flashing light to signal that it was on. The timer used to determine the time of this experiment was a stock iPhone timer. Both the meter stick and the timer played a huge role in this experiment. The distance that the buggy was traveling was 1 meter exactly. The distance did not change at all throughout the experiment. The time that the buggy traveled also did not change. The buggy traveled exactly 2.3 seconds every time we ran the experiment. The experiment was ran exactly 6 times. Data and Analysis: During the experiment I collected that the red blinking light on the buggy blinked 13 times in the meter that it traveled. I also recognized that the buggy was blue, silver and black. I realized that the speed of the buggy was partially determined by how charged the batteries were inside of the buggy. If the batteries were fully charged then the buggy would go faster and if the batteries were not fully charged then the buggy would go slower. Another observation was
