Day 172: Video Analysis of a Cartwheel




20130613-201045.jpgCollege-Prep Physics: Student used Logger Pro to do a video analysis of her doing a cartwheel. She tracked four different body parts: right foot, right hand, waist, and head. Really neat to see the different motions (constant velocity, constant acceleration) show up in the position and velocity graphs. Considering making this kind of analysis of human (or even animal) motion an assignment for next year.
