Physics 105

April 14, 2003

Today we will continue our study of collisions.

We will be carrying out collisions on the Quad in front of B&L using two large collision carts. Each collision will be videotaped for off-line analysis. Before we will carry out the collisions we will need to determine the parameters we need to record. Good record keeping is important. Each student will carry out two collisions. As part of the analysis the following questions will be asked:

In order to be able to answer these questions we need to make sure that we records the following information:

The analysis of this collision experiment will be carried out during the next two weeks.
