Name: David Calderon TA: Jie Zhang Section: TH 7:35-9:25 Date: 02/19/09 NEWTON'S SECOND LAW OF MOTION Abstract: Newton's Second Law of Motion can be summarized as F = m a . Where ∑ F equals the net external forces, m equals the mass under the influence of ∑ F , and a equals the acceleration of that object. This equation can be confirmed through recording the acceleration of a cart moved via the tension force of a line pulled by weights under free fall. The acceleration found in this experiment can be compared to the expected value of G = 9.81 m/s 2 .

I OBJECTIVE To confirm Newton's Second Law of Motion by measuring the acceleartion of G. II PROCEDURE The mass of the cart (M) and the S-hook hanger were measured. Graphical Analysis was prepared to record the mass of the weights used (m), slope 1( m 1 , m/s 2 ), slope 2( m 2 , m/s 2 ), a ave (m/s 2 ), and g (m/s 2 ). The first three are manual columns that were inputted as the experiment proceeded while the a ave and g are calculated columns from the other
