Introduction

SCIENCE COURSEWORK                                                       Anamul Hussain 11A

By: Anamul Hussain

INTRODUCTION:

As for my coursework I will be investigating how a car is going down the slope and the distance of the car and the last acceleration of the car and I will have to measure the distance.

AIM:

My aim for this experiment is to investigate how the speed and distance of a car goes downhill from different heights and angles.

PREDICTION:

My prediction is that the steeper the slope will be the faster the car will go but if the steep is less the car speed will go slower.

SCIENTIFIC THEORY:

The higher the slope is there will be more potential energy the car will have. Because the car

Conclusion

ANALYSES:

The first part of graph 1 is the steepest, it has low steep in the middle but the steep goes up at the end.

The first part of graph 2 is steepest, because the last part has less steep.

In graph 3 the first part is steep and in the middle there is less steep, the steep goes up at the end.

The last graph that is no 4 the first part is steep but in the middle there is less steep. The steep goes up and then down then it goes back to steep at the end.

CONCLUSION:

My aim has been met and my prediction was right.

The graph shows that the car goes faster when the slope is steeper and it goes slower if the slope is less steep and I really liked doing the experiment.

  1. Factors Affecting the Speed of a Car after Freewheeling down a Slope

    In my experiment I will be placing a trolley on a ramp at a height above the surface of the earth. It is the potential energy in the trolley that let it come down the slope when it is let go.

  2. Investigating the relationship between the speed of a model car and its stopping distance.

    * Light Gate / Electronic Timer- for measuring the speed of the car * Model Car - to run down the slope. * Blob of Plasticine - to attach the card to the top of the car. * Opaque Card - to break the light bar in the light gate thus measuring the speed.
