1. ## Max's post

Hello, my name is Max and I'm a senior in high school. Since everyone else is talking about the sports they play...I will too. My mother often asks me to stop playing tennis because it is such a physical sport, but I rarely listen to her so I continue to play at a varsity level. I can't have any pets except a boring fish because my dad is allergic to the fur on cats and dogs. At the moment I work at a restaurant called Hose 22 and I usually prepare food. I'm taking physics because it was recommended to me by my counselor. But I am excited to start physics because it looks like its going to be very different from all the other science classes. I also really want to learn more about the different forces that can act on objects.

2. ## Speeding Lab - Max\$\$, B-Reezy, NatalieGirl, JimJamarino, *Amy* ;-P

Introduction: We decided to see if cars travelling North down Cooper Road outside of Irondequoit High School were speeding. We set up a timing station at twenty meters from the start to measure the speed of passing cars. Procedure: We chose a starting point on a line on the road, so timers could better see when cars started the measurable distance. When a car passed the starting point, timers at the station began their stopwatch. When the car passed the timer, they stopped their watch. Timers recorded the time it took for the car to travel the distance. Calculation: Conclusion: The average speed was 15.7 m/s, just .1m/s over the speed limit. Our conclusion is that cars travelling on Cooper Road do not often speed, perhaps due to the school zone. If we do this experiment again, there are a few things we can improve on. For one, we had some large distances in time span; this can be remedied by perhaps standardizing the timing system â€“ should the timer start/stop when the front of the car passes through each point, the middle of the car, or the end?
