Object: Is to predict acceleration of a two-body system, by using Newton’s Second Law of Motion. We will set up a frictionless surface, the air track, which an object will sit on and move, due to the weight and acceleration given to it by the string, which is attached to its front of the object. This string is lying over the side of the table, and slides back and forth by the use of a pulley. Procedure: The group started off the experiment, by measuring the distance of the cart. After doing that the group proceeded to set up the two photo gates. We set up the first one 16 cm away from the start of the cart, the second photo gate was placed 24.05cm away form the other cart. Following that we weighted the cart, then the hanger, which would hold the weights, and finally we weighed all the weights that we were going to put on the hanger. Next the group ran the test, first by using all the weights on the hanger. Once we ran the cart through three times, we took a weight off the hanger weighed it and
