Using a ruler, measure the distance between the red ball of the probe and the center of the baseball. How fast is the airstream moving around the ball at this distance?
Distance ___________inch. Speed of the airstream ______________mph.
By moving only the slider to the left of the Probe Gage move the probe vertically above the ball and take five readings of distance and speed. Record these in the chart below. Repeat this for five readings below the ball.
Upper Distance (x) Upper Speed (y) Lower Distance (x) Lower Speed (y)
Using two different colored pens, graph the information from the chart on the graph provided. Graph #1 will be the upper side of the ball, and graph #2 will be the lower side.
