Unformatted text preview: 4. Let the glider go and stop the glider at the other end after it has passed through the picket fences. Stopping it will prevent the glider from bouncing back into the picket fences, which will create extra values. 5. Repeat the experiment again but with a different size block so that there is a different tilt angle. 6. Now remove the blocks and make sure the track is level. 7. Attach a 10g mass to a string that is tied to the glider and place it at the pulley at the end of the table so that the mass is hanging. 8. Release the glider just like before and record the velocities and times of the glider. Conclusion: It was clear in the experimental values that the energy of the glider was conserved because the F values after calculating for conservation of energy, was equal for both masses....
