This video adapted from the Encyclopedia of Physics Demonstrations explores how constant acceleration affects an object's motion. As a ball rolls down an incline, lights flash at one-second intervals, marking the position of the ball. Observe how the ball's position, velocity, and acceleration change as it rolls down the incline. Investigate its motion by plotting graphs of position versus time, average velocity versus time, and acceleration versus time.
