Our objective in this experiment was to test the speed of driver’s going down Cooper Road. We measured a certain portion of the street and cut the distance in half to make it an equal distance of 21 meters. Then we had two people at the start of each half to record times, along with the last person at the end of the 2nd half.

Step By Step Procedure:

1. The person at the start of the first half started the stopwatch as soon as a car reached their point.

2. They stopped timing when the car reached the second person, who was 21m down.

3. As a result, the second person started timing when the car got to their point, and stopped to timing when the car reached the end of the second half where the final person was standing.
