Item Picture
Uniform Motion
written by Aaron Titus
The Video Analysis of Uniform Motion lab uses the Tracker video analysis tool to measure and analyze the motion of a steel ball rolling with constant velocity on an aluminum track.

The zip file contains the lab handout, two videos (slower speed ball and faster speed ball), and the Tracker file.

To open the Tracker file, download and run Tracker from Tracker is free.

The videos can be used with other video analysis software; however, the handout has screen captures from Tracker and instructions specifically written for Tracker.
