P age |2 LINEAR MOTION OBJECTIVES 1. To determine displacement. Attach the ticker tape to the trolley using cellophane tape. To analyze linear motion of a moving object. Velocity is speed in a given direction. 3. 3. Set up apparatus as in Figure 1. Ticker timer 2. Carbonized ticker tape 3. Trolley -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 6. The runway is inclined about 1m – 2m. INFERENCE 1. HYPOTHESIS 1. Runway 4. Acceleration is the increase of velocity over a period of time. 8. 4. velocity and acceleration of a linear motion. Linear motion is a motion along a straight line. APPARATUS 1. 2. Switch on the ticker timer and release the trolley freely. so that the trolley will roll down freely from rest without any applied force. Velocity is uniform when acceleration is zero and non-uniform when acceleration is non zero. 2. 7. Power supply 5. 2. 2. Jumper wire Ruler Lab jack/clamp -2 -1 -1 PROCEDURES 1. BB101 . Deceleration is the decrease of velocity over a period of time.

Mark and number every 10th dot as Figure 2. 1 dot or 1 unit time represents 1/50 seconds or 0.02 seconds = 0. Time for 10 dots = 10 dots x 0.02 second. 2.P age |3 ANALYSING THE DATA 1.2 seconds BB101 . 2. Therefore. Note: 1. Frequency of ticker-timer is 50Hz. Cut and paste ticker tape into 10-dot strips on the graph paper as Figure 3.
