Conservation and the Coefficient of Rolling Friction Table I shows the initial velocity and the distance that the cart moves in the experiment as found in three separate trials. Initial Velocity and Distance Trial Distance (m) Velocity (m/s) 1 0.501 m 14.9 m/s 2 0.508 m 14.1 m/s 3 0.623 m 15.2 m/s Table II shows data collected/calculated in the experiment which includes the spring constant [k(N/m)], the average velocity of the cart [v av (m/s)], the average distance the cart moves to it’s final rest position [d av (m)], and the mass of the cart [mass(kg)]. Data k(N/m) 666 N/m v av (m/s) 14.73 m/s d av (m) 0.544 m mass(kg) 1.018 kg Calculations: v av = (14.9 m/s + 14.1 m/s + 15.2 m/s)/3 = 14.73 m/s d av = (0.501 m + 0.508 m + 0.623 m)/3 = 0.544 m mass = (500 g weight bar + 518g cart and photogate)/1000 = 1.018 kg Table III shows the energy stored in the spring when compressed in length to each of it’s three notch positions on the cart.
