Lesson 5

Lesson 5

Experiment (Forces)

Put different masses on the robot and allow it to collide with the cart.
Measure the distance the cart moves for each mass and put it in the form of a table.

What do you notice about the distance the cart moves when the mass of the robot is increased?
What does that say about the force the robot exerts when it gets heavier?

Graph the mass of the cart versus the distance traveled.
