# Speeding Lab Conclusion

## Recommended Posts

The purpose of the Speeding Lab was to measure the speed of 10 vehicles driving down Cooper Road. The speed limit on Cooper Road is 35 mph (15.6 m/s, or 56.3 km/hr). In this procedure, we set up the tape measure for 50 meters. We had one of our team members, Justin, stand at the 25 meter mark and record the time it took for a car to get from him from the starting point of 0 meters. Another one of our team members, Zach,  stood at the 50 meter mark and copied down the time it took for each car to travel from the 25 meter mark to the 50 meter mark. In conclusion, we recorded the data for a total of 10 cars. For our results, we observed that only 2 of the 10 we marked were over the speed limit, and 8 were not speeding. One way we could improve our work is to make sure that the time keepers know exactly when to start their stop watches. Another way we could improve this lab is to not make the 50 meter mark at a stop light because cars are slowing down as the light goes from yellow to red.
