Two Objects Moving at Constant Speed

Recently, you analyzed the motion of one object in motion. In this worksheet, you will do similar with two objects in motion. Remember that you can pause the video and make it full screen to help with data collection. Notice that one person is in frame right from the start and another person comes in frame later. Please get at least 10 data points for the first person and as many as you can for the second person.

Enter your data here.


Notice that you can move the sliders around and move the line. Adjust the sliders until it most closely matches the data from the first person. Write down the line equation from the results. Then do the same for the data from the second person. What predictions can be made from these equations? Make those predictions and we will check them the next time we meet.
