Inclined plane Episode II
- Juan Carlos Ponce Campuzano
1. The applet starts with one Time Interval, this means that the time is not divided. Divide the time into two intervals and observe the motion of the ball rolling down by pushing the Start button or using the slider Time. How many intervals does the ball cover in the first time interval? And in the second? 2. Choose another number of Time Intervals and observe what happens in each case. For example, if the time is divided into three intervals then how many distance intervals does the ball cover in the first time interval, in the second one, and in the third one? 3. Find a relationship between the number of time intervals and the number of distance intervals covered by the ball and observe whether this relationship is still maintained when you change the angle of inclination of the plane.
After you have played for a while with the applet, please return to the learning materials and continue.
