Introduction Newton’s third law of motion states that if object A exerts a force on objectB, object B exerts an equal, but opposite force on object A. The purpose ofthe experiment is to confirm or disprove the answers to the preparatoryquestions. Our answer to question 1 was B and our answer to question 2was A.Equipment -Two CI-6746Economy Force sensor.-Pasco Universal 850 interface.-2 carts.-2 Weights.-Computer.-Track.-Spirit level.Experiment setup-Place the track on the surface of a table. To prevent the carts ofdeviating from the track, confirm the surface of the track is parallelto the table by using a spirit level. If it is not, align the legs of thetrack to be positioned at the same height by rolling or unrolling thelegs.Place one Economy force sensor on each of the two carts. Then,connect the sensors to terminals A and B of the Pasco Universal 850interface.On the computer: open the capstone software and on the hardwaresetup option set the two inputs of A and B to be the correspondentforce sensors. Next, use the calculator tool to create a formula forthe difference between the two forces. Assign the variables used inthe formula to be the force data you have taken. Open a histogramto plot this difference. Set the recording conditions of the force
