Description: The apparatus involved in this experiment involves the motion sensor, a meter stick, a force sensor, a photogate, which allows us to record the velocity of the picket fence that is dropped. Also included are two gliders on the air track, which help to measure the acceleration of an object.

Theory: For this experiment we are using the equation F = m a and its relevant applications. To verify this theory, we will test the acceleration of objects relative to the forces that are acting upon them. Whether it is the gravitational, static or other forms of the force, we will be testing them. They accelerations for the object should be proportional to the force, for example in the experiment that we are using the picket fence, the acceleration for the picket fence should be the same in every trial and
