Uniformly Accelerated Motion Data : Included in sheets. Analysis (sample calculations) : V1 and propagation of error – V2 and propagation of error – Standard Deviation – a = g sin(θ) – Average a from drawn lines – Conclusions : 1) At the beginning of any experiment it is best to check the equipment to ensure the best possible results. To do this, we first leveled our air track. Then I ran my hand along the track to check for any holes that might have gotten clogged up. If holes had been clogged it would have caused a small amount of friction at that point on the track which would skew our results. 2) No matter how hard you try there will always be a small amount of error in the data collected. To try and reduce this error even further we tried different methods for releasing our glider. These included holding it against the bank with a pencil, doing the same thing with my hand, and just pushing it up there and letting
