In science:

For the lesson on velocity, we use a standard device (shown in figure 7). A long thin paper tape (“ticker-tape”) is attached to a low friction cart (shown at the left) and run through a “tapping device” that taps a sharp point onto the tape through a piece of carbon paper at a fixed rate.
