## Forza Motorsport Physics Lab

Introduction: What was done in the lab? What was being tested? What were we looking for? What was
the purpose of the lab? Give a little bit of background information on what we are doing (In other words, talk about how video games are now using real world physics to simulate real life and give the game a more lifelike feature). State a hypothesis.

Procedure: What did we do? What was the process (picking car, doing research, calculating, racing on
track, drag racing, actual calculation VS simulation calculation) How was it tested How did you pick your cars? What did you base your decision on?

Data: List your predicted rank, race rank, and drag race rank (Title: Car Rank Predictions) Car
Aston Martin DB9 Ford Mustang GT Chevy Corvette Dodge Challenger SRT8 Audi R8

Predicted Rank

Race Rank

## Drag Race Rank

List all cars with all data that was researched in a table (Title: Data From Real World Testing) Mass Aston Martin DB9 Ford Mustang GT Chevy Corvette Dodge Challenger SRT8 Audi R8 Acceleration Force Top Speed (mph)

## SHOW CALCULATIONS FOR ALL DATA (ATTACHED PAGES)

List all cars with ALL data that was collected through the game for the drag race.(Title: Game Simulation Drag Race Results at 1609.34 meters) Car Aston Martin DB9 Ford Mustang Gt Chevy Corvette Dodge Challenger SRT8 Audi R8 1st Trial 33.5 35 32 37 30 2nd Trial 33.5 35 32 37.2 30 3rd Trial 33.5 35.2 32 37.2 30 Average Time 33.5 35.1 32 37.1 30

List data found for calculations using real data (Title: Real World Data Calculations) Car Aston Martin DB9 Ford Mustang GT Chevy Corvette Dodge Challenger SRT8 Audi R8 Time in Acceleration in Seconds(Actual) m/s2 (Actual) Speed in m/s (Actual) Rank (Actual)

Results:
Explain all the data. Compare the data from the simulation with the real world. What did you find? Why do you think the real world acceleration came out a lot faster? What factors WERE NOT taken into account when calculating real world acceleration? What factors are present in the real world that might not be present in the game? What factors were not taken into account when calculating the game simulation data? Explain how the race data related to calculated data. What factors affected the outcome of the ranking for the race?

Conclusion:
State whether or not the game is a good simulation of real world physics as it applies to racing cars. Explain why. Discuss whether or not your predictions for the cars matched what you really found. Discuss what factors came into play that affected the data and outcomes. Discuss what you liked and
