PHY 113 : Newton’s Second Law of Motion Student’s name: Jarrod Harbour Lab partners: Jeff Weber and Lacy Butler Date of experiment: September 18, 2008 Section SLN: 79951 TA’s name: Jea-Young Choi Abstract: This experiment deals with Newton’s Second Law of Motion, how it works, and how this law deals with everyday physics. Newton’s Second Law will be dealt with by learning about how force equals mass times acceleration with an experimental setup of a cart attached to some weights. With these weights and acceleration due to weights, there will be a relationship with force, proving Newton’s Second Law of Motion to be true.

Unformatted text preview: I. Objective The objective of this experiment is to validate Newtons Second Law of Motion by measuring the acceleration of gravity. Gravity will be measured through relationships of acceleration and mass. The amount of mass put on the cart will present an acceleration of the cart. As the mass gets larger, the acceleration should increase on the cart. However, gravity should be constant because with more weight, there has to be more acceleration put onto the weight to maintain the same force. II. Procedure...
