Unformatted text preview: 6.125 m/s 2 (see calculations on attached sheet located on the back). For the second part of the experiment, we changed the angle of the track from 0 ° to 3 ° . We did the same process as before with the same two different masses. For the 200 grams mass (see graph 3 ° 200 g. x vs t ) the acceleration of the 300 grams cart was 3.61 m/s 2 and for the 500 grams mass (see graph 3 ° 500 g. x vs t ) we got the acceleration to be 5.93 m/s 2 (look at the calculations on the second attached sheet at the end). Conclusion This experiment demonstrated us that if the mass of the weight is larger the acceleration of the cart is going to be greater (in both cases: horizontal and not horizontal). Also we demonstrated that the greater the angle (between 0 ° and 90 ° ) the smaller the acceleration of the cart....
