POST LAB 3 1) The acceleration of an object is inversely dependent upon the mass of the object.  Therefore the heavier the mass, the slower the acceleration. 2) The acceleration of an object depends directly upon the net force acting on the object.  Therefore, more force equals to more tension, which means higher acceleration.   3) This system is no ideal for these few possible reasons: a. Air resistance (can decelerate) b. Pulley friction (can decelerate)  c. Pulley mass and string mass (can provide extra inertia)

Unformatted text preview: 4) If the string was heavier then it would not have the same dynamics. For example if mass 1 was heavier than mass 2 then mass 1 would also have more string, which means that it would have more mass from that string then would mass2. When there is no weight from string, the velocity curve is straight which means there is constant acceleration. Now there will be no constant acceleration, which means that the v/t graph would have a gentle upward trend....
