Steven Akdemir Instructor Yan Liu Antonio Nigro, Matthew Jeffers, Bassam Hinnawi Feb. 16, 2016 Physics 111A Newton’s Second Law Introduction We performed this experiment with three main objectives: verify Newton’s second law of motion in a one-dimensional motion system, learn how to construct free body diagrams to visualize the forces with their magnitudes and directions acting on the object in the one dimensional system, and to understand how to derive the equation for theoretical acceleration from the free body diagrams and compare them to the experimental acceleration. Procedure Part one: We began by gathering the necessary materials for the experiment, which were: - A computer with capstone software installed, 850 universal interface, air track w/ air supply and hose, two photo gates, two C-clamps to hold the gates, glider, cylindrical metal objet hooked with string, four glider masses, wooden block to lift the air track with, a ball bearing pulley, one 20g and two 10g weights with a hook, a protractor, and an electronic balance.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
