UNIT 6 – M3 - Swarnim Ghale To describe each stage: Method 1:- All of us were given the following equipment: Ramp, foam block with weight, meter ruler, jack and stop-watch. * Firstly, we placed the Jack underneath the beginning line of the ramp in order to vary the height between the ramp and the ground. Then, the foam-block (with some weights) was at the end of the ramp. * The five different heights: 0.10m, 0.15m, 0.20m, 0.25m and 0.30m were chosen. * At each height, we placed the trolley at the top (start line) of the ramp and held it with the meter ruler. At the countdown of three, the ruler was removed and the start- button on the stop watch was pressed at the same time. After it…show more content…
* We kept the foam block (metal in the box) at the end of the ramp. On the jack(an equipment which is used to vary heights), the top of the ramp was placed on it. * The Light gates detector was placed at the finishing point of the ramp. * Like in method 1, the five different heights : 0.10m, 0.15m, 0.20m, 0.25m and 0.30m were taken. * The final speed was recorded by the light gate detector about three times for each height. * To record the speed, we held the trolley at the top of the ramp with the help of meter rule. Then, as the trolley rolled down at the end of the ramp, the light gate detected its speed in metre per second(m/s). * The average speed of the final speed was calculated by : Vavg of the final speed (Vf) = V1+V2+V3 (m/s) 3 * The final speed was recorded by the light gate detector about three times for each
