Coordinates for the points on the Displacement vs Time plot (2 points each)

4 )  a)  ________    b) ________    c) ________    d) ________    e) ________

5) Use the graph paper given to plot the following points.

 Time (sec) Velocity (cm/sec) 0 0 3 6.60 6 12.30 9 18.00 12 22.80 15 30.60 18 37.50 21 40.00 24 49.00 27 54.00 30 59.00 33 66.60 36 72.00

a) Work in pencil only. 2 points

b) Neatly draw the x and y axis using a RULER like we did in the example plot.
- 2 points

c) Mark off every 10 small boxes on the y axis like we did in the example plot.
- 2 points

d)  Mark off every 5 small boxes on the x axis like we did in the example plot.
- 2 points

e) Number the x and y axis so that your graph will be as large as possible  - 8 pts

f) Label the x and y axis using the variables and units from the table (time is the independent variable, x axis) 4 points

g) Name the plot Velocity vs Time for a Car Moving Down a Ramp  - 3 pts

h) Plot the data - 10 points

i) Circle all your data points like we did in the example plot - 2 pts

j)  Do not draw a line or curve through the points. We will do this later  - 4 points
