This lab deals the gravity, vectors, and forces. Part 1 of the lab deals with calibration of the force sensor. Part 2 deals with the measurement of the force that the dynamic cart applies to the force sensor and then calculating the force that is parallel to the track surface. Apparatus and Method: The equipment used in this experiment is the dynamic cart, track, lab stand, masses, meter stick, ruler, balance, force sensor, and data studio, The method of this lab is to set the track at a know angle and measure the force of the car on the force sensor. After we measure a force with the force sensor we can calculate the force vector that is parallel to the track plane using the following formula. θ SIN F F W p = The slope of the line for the measured force data set was calculated using the following formula. 1
