## Does the space between dominoes affect the speed?

The results show that the speed of the falling of the dominoes is in inverse proportion to an increase of the distance between dominoes. The speed of falling dominoes that has the distance of 0.5cm between the dominoes was fastest in both the 1.5m and 3.0m lengths.

## What are factors that affect the speed of falling dominoes?

The amount of time it takes for a chain of dominoes to fall varies as a function of the number of dominoes in the chain, the amount of space between the dominoes, the total distance the dominoes span and the shape of the domino arrangement.

**What happens to the kinetic energy of the first domino when it hits the second domino?**

the potential energy of the 1st domino is transformed into kinetic energy which is transferred to the 2nd domino, knocking it over.

**How does the distance between dominoes affect the speed that dominoes fall?**

As a domino just begins to fall, it moves slowly, and therefore impacts the next tile in the row with little force. So, when the tiles are farther apart, the first tile hits the second one with greater force, and the chain reaction can be expected to accelerate faster than when the tiles are lined up closer together.

### How does distance affect the speed of a moving object?

Speed does not affect distance. Nor distance will affect speed, as speed is only dependent on the power that an object gets from a propulsion or force. Meanwhile, time over a certain distance is affected as speed increase or decrease.

### How do potential energy and kinetic energy of a domino change as it topples over?

As a domino falls, energy is converted from one form to another. This change creates a chain reaction, causing domino after domino to topple. As a domino falls, energy is converted from one form to another. When the domino falls, much of its potential energy is converted to kinetic energy, or energy of motion.

**How do dominoes work physics?**

Standing a domino upright gives it potential energy, or stored energy based on its position. When the domino falls, much of its potential energy is converted to kinetic energy, or energy of motion. When the domino falls, much of its potential energy is converted to kinetic energy, or energy of motion.

**How does distance depend on speed?**

How does distance affect speed? The speed is directly proportional to distance travelled. The definition says,the measure of speed is distance travelled by a body of uniform mass per unit time henceforth,speed is directly proportional to the distance travelled by the body.

#### What should be the spacing of a domino?

For heavier dominoes giving a maximum speed, the maximum occurs typically at a spacing of around 0.55–0.60 domino lengths. For lighter dominoes giving a minimum speed, the minimum occurs typically at a spacing of 0.3 to 0.5 domino lengths. 1.5 dominos should have the fastest speed.

#### What is the maximum speed of a domino?

Heavy plastic dominoes show maximum speeds around 100–110 cm/s. Light wooden dominoes show minimum speeds around 80 cm/s. 5. What spacing between dominoes do you predict would give the maximum or minimum speed? What is the ratio of this spacing to the length of a domino?

**How many dominoes would it take to fall in a minute?**

-Using the maximum toppling speed (19.8 m/s), we would need 1,714 dominoes with a spacing of 4 cm to fall in a minute. If 50 dominoes take 1.75 sec to fall, then (60×50)/ 1.75= 1,714.

**What are the factors that affect the speed of falling dominoes?**

The average speed is the total distance traveled divided by the total time taken. 2. What are the factors that affect the speed of falling dominoes? Gravity, force at which the dominoes are flicked down, distance between dominoes, size of dominoes, mass of dominoes. 3.
