1. In this lab, we had to determine the averagespeed of each car passing by. We decidedto use distance and time so we could see the final speed compared to the 15.6m/s speed limit.

2. Ours steps to measure speed:

a. Find a distance of 20 meters by using a tapemeasure

b. Designate one person to stand on one end of thetape and another on the other end

c. Assign one person to take time and another torecord car info.

d. One person would signal the passing

e. Start the clock

f. Other person signals car crossing next point

g. Stop the clock

h. Record the time

i. Find the speed by dividing distance by time andcomparing it to the regular speed limit

j. Average the final speed that the cars traveled
