Students use an Accelerometer to analyze the motion of a bungee jumper and determine a point where there is maximum and minimum acceleration in the course of the motion. They also compare the experimental data with an actual bungee jump.
Students set up the experiment by attaching a small piece of wood or a doll to the Accelerometer and attaching the Accelerometer to a rubber band that is attached to a rigid support such as a large ring stand.
Students select the LOW G ACCEL from the set up menu and start collecting data 1 second before they release the bungee jumper. Students then analyze the graph created to determine the minimum and maximum acceleration points.
