Introduction: 1) Objective: To investigate the effect of increases in mass on an accelerating system. Then, investigating how increasing the applied force affects the acceleration of a system. 2) Method: For constant force and changing mass, we took a dynamics cart and used the same applied force each time but decreased the mass of the cart. We applied a force to the cart by suspending a weight over a pulley to see the relationship between mass and acceleration. For constant mass and changing force, we increased the applied force without changing the mass by removing mass from the cart and placing it on the hanging weight. 3) Results: For constant force and changing mass, the less mass, the more acceleration. For constant mass and changing force, the more hanging weight, the more acceleration. Experimental Procedure:
