Physics Coursework (Mechanics involved)Watch
I was given the height of the plank, the length of the plank, the length of the buggy and the length of the tickertimer (obviously you remove the length of the tickertimer and buggy from the length of the plank to get the distance the buggy will be travelling) I have worked out the average distance for each reading (given in 0.1s intervals) I also plotted graphs and have drawn lines of best fit. I have worked out the angle of the plank in order to work out the time the buggy will take to travel down the plank if there were no other forces acting upon it (friction, air resistance). This is the stage I am at now, I am going to compare the two numbers. But once I have done that what could I do next? Keeping in mind that this is only a data analysis coursework. I am not supposed to carry out this investigation and then write up on it, I have simply been given values and I am to interpret the data.
Perhaps I should compare this with another set of data I was given, but what could I compare? (other sets of data have different heights)
