College-Prep Physics: Today we shared out the results from Friday’s PhET Force and Motion simulation lab. Some students used Desmos to determine the line/curve of best fit, other did it manually (easy since the data is perfect). Then we tried to tease out what each of the constants in the 2 equations mean. (Here’s the one time where it’s more useful to express the slope as a fraction rather than a decimal.)
