Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Step one:  Make sure that all of moving mans values are set to zero and that the tab is set on "introduction". Step two:  Set the moving mans velocity to 5 m/s and the acceleration to -2 m/s/s Step three:  Press play then press pause when the moving man returns to its starting point.   Question: Which of the following best describe how blue slider (position) moved 
    • A. 

      It moved to right at a constant pace

    • B. 

      It moved to left at a constant pace

    • C. 

      It moved to the right then turned around and moved to the left

    • D. 

      It moved to the left then turned around and moved to the right

    • E. 

      It remained stationary

  • 2. 
    The blue slider (position) remained a positive value for the entire time
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 3. 
    Which of the following best describes the motion of red slider (velocity). 
    • A. 

      It remains stationary

    • B. 

      It moves to the left

    • C. 

      It moves to the right

    • D. 

      It moves to the left then to the right

  • 4. 
    The red slider (velocity) remains positive the entire time.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 5. 
    At what point does the slider turns from positive to negative.  
    • A. 

      When the moving starts

    • B. 

      When the moving man is paused

    • C. 

      When the moving man reaches the apex of his move (maximum distance from the starting point)

    • D. 

      It never turns negative

  • 6. 
    The reason the red slider (velocity) turns from positive to negative is because the moving man changed direction, he quit moving to the right and started moving to the left.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 7. 
    How does the green slider (acceleration) behave?
    • A. 

      It moved to the left

    • B. 

      It moves to the right

    • C. 

      It moves to the right then to the left

    • D. 

      It remains stationary

  • 8. 
    Step one:  Click on the tab "chart" set the position to zero the velocity to 5 m/s and velocity to -2 m/s/s  Predict what the position graph will look like
  • 9. 
    Predict what the velocity graph will look like
  • 10. 
    Predict what acceleration graph look like.
  • 11. 
    Press play and pause when the moving man returns to his starting point. Where you predictions correct?  Why does the graphs appear the way they do?
