First report Thu 18 January 2018 spitwad[edit]

start here

In this lab students worked to measure the acceleration of a basketball. To accomplish this task students used a meterstick to apply a constant force on the ball. Students used a taped off tile floor to measure how far the ball traveled. At every second interval a few spitwads were thrown at the current location of the ball. After completion of the task students picked the most accurate spitwads to create a scatter plot that showed the results of the acceleration of the ball.

interval t (sec) v(ft/s) ft in
0 0
'0-1 0.5 2 1
'1-2 1.5 6 10
'2-3 2.5 9 6
'3-4 3.5 8 6
'4-5 4.5 14 7
'5-6 5.5 10 5
Can you estimate the slope and guestimate the uncertainty?
