A group of students performed the same "Newton's Second Law" experiment that you did in class. For this lab, assume g = 9.81 m/s 2 . They obtained the following results: m 1 (kg) t 1 (s) v 1 (m/s) t 2 (s) v 2 (m/s) 0.050 1.2000 0.2500 1.8096 0.4261 0.100 1.2300 0.3240 1.6397 0.6622 0.150 1.1500 0.3820 1.4808 0.8373 0.200 1.1100 0.4240 1.3974 0.9476 where m 1 is the value of the hanging mass (including the mass of the hanger), v 1 is the average velocity and t 1 is the time at which v 1 is the instantaneous velocity for the first photogate, and v 2 is the average velocity and t 2 is the time at which v 2 is the instantaneous velocity for the second photogate. (a) Use Excel to construct a spreadsheet to do the following. (You will not submit this spreadsheet. However, the results will be needed later in this problem.) (i) Enter the above data. (ii) Compute the acceleration, a , for each trial. (iii) Create a graph of the hanging weight m 1 g vs. the acceleration. (iv) Use the trendline option to draw the best fit line for the above data and determine the slope and y ­intercept from it.

M = (No Response) (c) Using the information you obtained in parts (a) and (b), predict what the value of the acceleration would be if the value of the hanging mass were increased to m 1 = 0.30 kg. a = (No Response)
