Ethan Martinez Atwood’s Machine Lab Personal Statement- I liked this experiment because usually we just accept the value of  a constant without any experiment and this time we tried it out for ourselves.

Abstract-  The focus of this experiment is to use an Atwood Machine, which consist of two  masses attached to a string which is placed on a pulley, to determine the acceleration  due to gravity.  Introduction –  The Atwood machine is a device which was used by George Atwood to measure  gravitational acceleration. This machine uses a pulley system and two unequal masses  to test Newton’s second law of motion. Newton’s second law states that any system’s  acceleration is directly proportional to the net external force which acts upon the  system, and is inversely proportional to the total mass of the system. This experiment is
