Purpose: The focus of this experiment was to verify Newton’s second law F=ma  (mass * acceleration). The purpose of the lab is to prove that the relationship  between the resultant force and the acceleration is linear.  Procedure: Our goal was to collect data from five trials that we were to run with  different amounts of total hanging weight measured in n: .49n, .686n, .882n,  1.078n, .1.274n. First we set up the program to collect data from a Vernier Smart  Pulley; which acted as a photo gate sensor. Then we measured each separate  total hanging weight (n), which was connected to the cart via string. The hanger  started empty while the cart started with 80 grams. For the other four trials 20  grams were removed from the cart each time and placed upon the hanger. The
