Wynn Dixon PHYS 1240-020 Post Lab Force, Mass and Acceleration 1. The glider’s acceleration would not change if the mass was doubled or halved. Acceleration is a quantity that is independent of mass. 2. The y-intercept represents the glider’s velocity at time 0 seconds, which is the velocity the glider was traveling at when it first entered the photogate. 3. The y-intercept of the graph is 0.0257. The non-zero y -intercept indicates that the glider was moving before it was measured by the photogate, meaning it was released too far away from the sensor. 4. T= m 1 a m 2 g T = m 2 a Substitute the variable T in this equation with the first equation
