Figure 3-2 Faster car passes the slower car where and when lines cross. 6. Predict where the faster car you are working with will overtake the slower car. 7. Start the slower car and give it a head start. 8. Compare where and when the faster car will overtake the slower car with your predictions. Expected Results The faster car will overtake the slower car when the two lines in the graph cross. The distance the lines cross at is how far from the starting line the faster car catches the slower car.

Playing catch-up. The Idea One car is going faster than the other, but the slower car has a head start. We can predict where and when the faster car will overtake the slower car. All we have to do is graph the movement of each car and see where the lines cross. This experiment gives you a method to make that prediction. What You Need 2 toy cars with adjustable speeds stopwatch tape measure Method 1. Set the speed of each of the two cars, so one is faster than the other. ) 2. Determine the average velocity of each of the cars by measuring the distance it goes in a given amount of time.
