This lab uses wind-up toys to calculate speed. All material and equipment needed for this lab is listed on the datasheet
*One wind-up toy per team
*One stopwatch per team
Students will use the marker and string as needed. If the toys travels in a crooked line, student will use an expo marker to trace the path and measure it with their string. Students will then measure the length of the string to get the total distance.
Students are required to calculate the speed for each trial (showing all work) and then create 3 Distance vs. Time graphs for each trial.
