1) Objective: Our objective in this lab is to study the relationships between acceleration, velocity, position and time. By studying the relationships we can verify the relationships between Newton’s laws of motion. 2) Description: The apparatus that we are using is composed of an air track, two gliders of different sizes, a meter stick, the motion sensor, two blocks of wood to change the angles and the physics lab software. 3) Theory: Velocity is defined as the derivative of the position function and acceleration is defined as the second derivative of the position function. In accordance with the experiment Newton’s second law would also be prevalent, with the acceleration of the glider = g (sinθ) 4) Procedure and Lab Questions Answered: We first measured the distance between the single supporting screw at one end of the air track and the line formed by the two supporting screws at the other end of the air track.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
