Task 3: Speed - Measure the speed of a trolley down a ramp and use the formula to calculate speed

Video clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6K-F9Bjl8s

Which variables affect the speed of a toy car?

What you will need:

metre ruler or tape measure

• toy car

• ramp/or some cardboards

• blocks

• stop clock

 

Method

A) Set up the ramp as shown. Put a cushion at the end of the ramp to catch the car.

 

B) Measure the height and length of the ramp. Write the numbers here:

    Height ________________ cm          Length _________________________ cm

C) Measure the time taken for the car to roll down the ramp and write it in the results table under Time 1.

D) Repeat the measurement twice more.

E) Repeat steps B to D with different ramp heights

Ramp height (cm)

Time 1 (s)

Time 2 (s)

Time 3 (s)

Mean (average) time (s)

Mean (average) speed (m/s)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1a.  Calculate the mean time for each height by adding all three results together and dividing the answer by 3.

1b. Now calculate the speed for each ramp height.(distance /time)

2. How does the height of the ramp affect the speed of the car?

Evaluation

3. How reliable were your results? (Hint: how close were your repeated results to each other?)

4. Suggest one way to improve your investigation

Measuring speed:

Distance, Speed, Time

  1. Measure a distance you want to run in metres. E.g. 10m, 5m or 200m. This could be in a room, garden or park.
  2. Get someone to time how long it takes you to run/walk that distance.
  3. Divide your distance by your time. E.g. 100m ➗ 9.58 seconds = 10.4m per second (Usain Bolt’s 100m world record!). This is your speed.

Investigate what your speed is at different distances

Pacing:

Using what you have just used in the measuring speed task have a go at setting yourself a speed target and try to achieve it.

E.g. 10m course 2m per second speed target

Using the speed triangle:

10 ➗ 2 = 5 seconds

So, your target is to run the 10m course in exactly 5 seconds.

This will be trial and error and you will not get this straight away.

Explore with different distances and different speed targets or even harder, can you repeat the same speed multiple times.

This is a helpful skill to adjust your pace when racing in athletics or cross country.
