2. Please read Physics Lab Activity - Motorized Cars. Also read and use these as a guide in writing your lab report: Thickness of a Page Lab Report and the Lab Report Grading Sheet. There is a box of motorized cars under the table in the middle of the room and screwdrivers and extra batteries on the table. Red cars should have one battery and a piece of tinfoil in them to make them go slower than the blue cars which should have two batteries. Stopwatches and tape measures are also on the table. Start a shared google doc for a lab report for your lab group (work in groups of 2 or 3). You will be doing the report together except for the conclusion. Please start this today and at least write the purpose statement and hypothesis and get a data table set up for next class.
