Experiment 4:Newton’s Second LawAlma RomeroJune 14, 2018(Lab Partners- Martin Alvarez, George Said, Alex Votypka)IntroductionThe purpose of the experiment is to be able to study the relationship between force, mass andacceleration of the cart using newton’s second law.TheoryThe equation for the force isF=mahere m is the mass of the object and a is accelerationThe net force equation taking the pulley as frictionless isFnet=(m1+m2)ahere a is the acceleration and m are the masses of the two objectsThe net force when pulley is not frictionless isFnetF=(m1+m2+meq)aProcedures1.We first started with the computer setup, by logging into Scienceworkshop7502. We then continued with the measurements, we pulled the cart back 0.5 meters and let go, thisprocess could get us the graph on the velocity, and by using the slope of the velocity we obtained theacceleration using the linear fit. First started with 0.50kg on the cart and 0.010kg hanging we kept adding
