Conclusions: 1) Describe 2 things you did to make sure your equipment was working. a. We tested the puck and air table by releasing it several times and observing it to ensure that the glider moved smoothly along the track. b. We tested the elasticity of the rubber band and made sure there were no rips or tears in it which would hurt our experiment. 2) Describe 2 things you did to reduce the amount of error in your data. a. We tried different methods of releasing the puck to ensure the best results. Methods we tried included bouncing the glider off the center pole, releasing with a low initial velocity, and releasing with a high initial velocity. We found that overall the best results came from releasing it with a high initial velocity which caused the least problems during the motion. b.
