M5 Newton’s Second Law (PHY 158) In this experiment you will investigate Newton’s second law G G using the air track. The lab has three parts: a m F = V3. Measure the acceleration of gravity g V2. Verify eq.1b of the manual ( ) 2 t a Δ yq 1 etermine the frictional force sing eq 9 of the manual 2 S Δ V1. Determine the frictional force f using eq.9 of the manual ( )( ) 2 1 2 1 a a M M f + = 2 (page 1)
