Day 69: Real-life Acceleration Problem

 

A constant velocity buggy (green) and a cart (black) are at the top of an incline and they are released from rest simultaneously. Predict where the black cart will catch-up to the green buggy. (Students were given the velocity of the green buggy and the acceleration of the black car as given by a motion detector and LoggerPro.)

We’ll be back on January 3rd for Day 70! Happy holidays!
