Describe, in detail, how you would move in order to create an exact duplicate of this graph.

Start very close and stay in same position for four seconds.
Move halfway back in one second, and maintain position for some time
Move back at a moderate pace.
Stay in place.

How does the resulting velocity time graph compare with the velocity time graph you predicted in procedure 11?
Our position graph was similar, but opposite of the actual graph.
Our velocity graph was not similar to actual graph.
We had to adjust the time for the model in order to capture the whole graph.
Describe any major differences.
Our V shaped position graph was the opposite shape (^) based on the experience of using the cardboard starting close to the computerized motion detector to generate a V using the motion detector cardboard.
Our carrat shaped velocity graph predicted a rise as velocity increased until it reached the end. Then a decrease in velocity on the way down.
Our velocity graph was not similar. The actual graph quickly gained negative velocity going toward the motion detector, and then steadily gained velocity until reaching the end, where it experienced a second “rebound” burst of negative velocity.
Be sure to include an error analysis and a conclusion
I learned something about velocity and how it looks on a graph. I expected velocity to behave differently than it did.
I learned that the position graph is an approximation of total distance from the detector (y) in time (x).
