If F is the net force, and if m is the mass of the object, then the acceleration is given by a=F/m, more familiar to us as F=ma. The purpose of this laboratory e xercise is to verify Newton’s Second Law. Theory: a1 = a2= a a = a1 = a2 = acceleration (m/s^2) ∑F1= m1*g – T = m1*a1 m1: hanging mass (kg); g: acceleration of the gravity (m/s^2) ∑F2= T- f = m2*a2 m2: the weight of the cart (kg); T: pulling force of the string (N); t: the opposite force of the pulling force (N). ??¡ = ¢ 1 ∗ ? = ¢ 1 + ¢ 2 £ + ? a = 2 − 1 2 − 1 a: common acceleration (m/s^2) v1,v2: velocity measured at photo gate 1 and 2, respectively (m/s)....
