Acceleration is one of the basic concepts of the theory of motion. It indicates how fast an object changes its speed and is measured in the unit m/s². The concept of acceleration is based on the average acceleration as the quotient of the change in speed in a given period of time.
Velocity is one of the basic concepts of the theory of motion. It indicates how fast an object is moving in space and is measured in the unit meter per second. The concept of instantaneous velocity is based on the average velocity as the quotient of the change in position in a given period of time.

1) Record several speed-time diagrams via the app. Select a measuring range and let it calculate the acceleration for the recorded curves.
2) Use the velocity-time diagram to determine the position-time diagram of the movement.
In this experiment the students learn about the physical meaning of acceleration. They also learn how to obtain the local time diagram from a velocity-time diagram.
