The data we retrieved gave us a basic understanding of the laws of motion. By gathering data from the following tests we were able to calculate centimeters per second. As well as to determine the speeds of two constant velocity objects. After going over the data, an equation was set up to help determine the distance by multiplying time and velocity.
