### Roller coaster lab report 2010

1. 1. Name__________________________ Roller Coaster Lab Report Purpose: 1. To determine an effective and creative way to design a roller coaster in which a ball will make its way to the end of the tubing track. 2. To calculate the speed, acceleration, momentum, and force of a ball at various points along the track. 3. To determine potential energy and kinetic energy at various points along the track. Data Given: • Tube Length: 3.9 meters • Ball mass: 0.002 kilograms Data Rounding Tips: • Time, Average Speed, Average Acceleration to the tenth: (0.0) • Force and Momentum to the ten thousandth: (0.000) Procedures 1. Read the lab report 2. Team Jobs • Turn in to your teacher the sheet indicating who is team leader for which job 3. Formulas • Fill in formulas Average Speed Average Acceleration Force Momentum 4. Materials • List materials you think you may need in the materials section of the lab report • Go back to this list any time you use a new material during the lab.
3. 3. 8. Data Collection • As the ball bearing rides the coaster, time it using a stopwatch. Time with Label: Trial 1 Trial 2 Trial 3 Trial 4 Trial 5 Trial 6 Trial 7 Trial 8 Average Time with Label 9.
