Lab 112: Newton’s Second Law Gabriela Majcher Group 5 Experiment Date: 02/13/18 Submission Date: 02/20/18 Physics 102A-004 Professor Linghua Zhu Partners’ Names: Rosely Zayas Estefany Jara Kevin Roberton Noah Benipayo William Radcliffe Introduction Objective: To confirm Newton’s Second Law of a one-dimensional motion system of which the known is the mass of the glider on a frictionless air track is accelerated by a falling object and learn to create free body diagrams with magnitude and direction. To derive the theoretical equation based on given equations and compare to experimental. Background: Based on Newton’s Second Law of Motion an object will remain in rest if no net force is acting upon it. If the object has a constant velocity, the object will continue moving at the same speed if there is no net force upon it. If there is a net force upon the object, it causes the object to acceleration. Newton’s second law is written as F = ma. In this specific laboratory, the force that causes the acceleration is produced by the tension in the cord connected to a hanging weight. Procedure Set up the experiment is represented as Figure 1: Figure 1

Part I (pg. 28-29) After that is completed continue by measuring the mass of the glider with the cylindrical metal object hooked with string together. Weight the mass of one single glider as well. The hanging mass is fixed at 40 g. There will be a total of 3 runs: glider with no glider weights, glider with 2 glider weights, and glider with 4 glider weights. Click “record” and release the glider from rest and collect the data. Record the data (velocity at both photogates and time

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
