GCCCD Movement Graph of Dictyostelium Discoideum Homework.

Question Description

Down below, you will see a picture of a graph of the movement of Dictyostelium discoideum, shown as asequence of outlines of the amoeba cell at 3.0-minute intervals. Your task is to record and analyze the motion of the amoeba—specifically, the position, instantaneous and average speed, andinstantaneous and average acceleration. Rather than do all of the mathematical calculations by hand, Excel can help you do the calculations much more quickly and efficiently.

you will submit a set of graphs (y vs. t, v vs. t) with your data tables and the typed responses to these questions:

1)What do these graphs say about the motion of this organism?

2)Look at the top speed for the organism. If the organism were moving at the top speed for an entire day (24 hours) how far would it travel. Compare this to the length of the human body.

3)What did you learn from this first online lab? What do you think the instructors are hoping you start to learn and practice from this?


And please make sure to fill out the two data that uploaded down below.
