516 William Okpala December 5 2018 Conclusion: The relationship between acceleration and the total mass is inverse and our equation is a =( .52 m / s 2 1 Kg ) mass + .043 m / s 2 and our constant in this is ε F = .5 N . The slope means that the more mass there is the less the object will accelerate The relationship between acceleration and ε F is linear a =( .5521 m / s 2 Kg ) ε F + .038 m / s 2 and we kept a constant Total Mass = 1.755 Kg . The slope means that as the ε F increases the acceleration

increases. But the y-intercept must be due to human error because an object won’t accelerate if force is not applied, and an object with no mass is not an object so it can’t accelerate. We derived the

Unformatted text preview: general equation a = ε F m which is just ε F = a×m which translates into Newton’s Second Law. The new principle we derived was Inertia (it has nothing to do with frictional forces) which is the property of matter, applied to all objects, and the measure of resistance to motion. This equation makes sense since if you push a man and an elephant with the same amount of force the elephant will be barely moved since it won’t accelerate as much since it has more mass. An error that could have affected our data was air resistance since it could have slowed the car's acceleration....

What students are saying

• 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.
