Day 26: Up and Down the ramp

20121001-200009.jpg

This is a gorgeous whiteboard from our session today, comparing acceleration, velocity, and position vs time graphs for a cart that was launched up a ramp, rolling up and back down. The dotted lines are the start of the independent motion (after the launch), the point when the cart hit the highest point on the track, and the end of the independent motion. We will finish unpacking this scenario tomorrow.
