Item Picture
written by John Kinchin
Tracker was used to analyze three points at different radii on a rotating turntable. Directions and magnitudes of the velocity and acceleration vectors were plainly visible to students. Plots of the x-components of displacement, velocity and acceleration were sinusoidal and clearly showed that the maximum velocity occured at the minimum displacement and the maximum acceleration at the maximum displacement.
