Amanda Runey Physics Segvich 31 January 2008 Incline Lab Report Introduction According to Galileo, an object should move at a constant acceleration, without any outside forces, all the way down a plane. This experiment sought to discover whether the length that the object travels down the incline effects the acceleration. It also tested whether the mass of the object had an effect. Lastly, the experiment tested whether the angle of the incline affect the acceleration. Procedures/Methods To perform this experiment, we used a dynamic cart track and cart, a textbook, and a stopwatch. We first set the track at a very low angle with a book at the lowest end to stop the cart. We started the cart at 200cm and the end mark was at 30cm, sending the cart a distance of 170cm. We measured the amount of time it took the cart to go that distance. We repeated the procedure three times, and then changed the distance. At this low angle we recorded three trials for five separate distances and then took the average of
