The problem we faced today is that we wanted to see if cars were speeding down cooper road. So to test this we recorded how long it took a car to go 10 meters, then converted that time into miles per second and recorded our data.

To do this experiment, we measured out 10 meters on the school sidewalk facing the road. We had one person with a timer stand at the start of 10 meters and someone else with a timer stand at the end of the 10 meters. We recorded 10 cars go by. One at a time we recorded how long it took for each car to go 10 meters. We recorded the time the time it took then converted the time from meters per second to miles per hours.

In this lab we measured the speed of cars going down cooper road. In our data we found that the cars going down cooper road were going slower than the speed limit. What we could do to improve our data is being more accurate at timing the cars, or possible get a radar gun to measure the speed of the car.

There is not a speeding problem on cooper road. The data suggest that there is an under speed problem on cooper road. The cars are going to slow, the fastest car was measured at 32.42 miles per hour. Thus proving that the cars on cooper road are not speeding but in fact are going to slow.
