      Simulation #1:  Moving Man


You are here because you will be doing a computer simulation of the Moving Man. This is our Lab for Unit # 2, which is kinematics. This simulation is the brainchild of Dr. Carl Weinman, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2001, for the replication of Bose-Einstein Condensate, a state when matter is near Absolute Zero - meaning, -273.15 Celsius, which you have learned in Unit 1 (Opps, I meant to say you only learned how to convert Celsius to SI Unit!).  For our Do Now, convert this to SI Unit. Which is of course, Kelvin (it would be easy for the contenders of our Genius Competition, because recently, they have studied it HEHE)

SIMULATION # II (Constant velocity Vs. Constant acceleration)

 

Let's answer the question using above simulation:


Observe the animation of the three cars  above. Use the animation to answer the three questions. (Remind Mr. Bari to review the definition of Acceleration.)


1. Which car/cars (red, green,  blue) are undergoing an acceleration? Study each car individually in order to determine the answer.


2. Which car (red, green, or blue) experiences the greatest acceleration?



3. Consider the position-time graph at the right. Each one of the three lines on the position-time graph corresponds to the motion of one of the three cars. Match the appropriate line to the particular color of car.
