This module illustrate the physics concepts of position, velocity, acceleration, energy transfer, and their relationships. You will be able design an inclined plane that can collect data about an object’s position over time, create a position-time graph, illustrate the concept of conservation of momentum, and conduct trials using various objects.


The presentation material and the code can be downloaded at Kinematics using an Inclined Plane.
