Also, observing the effects of gravity on an object's motion.IntroductionWe rolled special carts up and down an inclined track, measuring initial positions, velocities, and accelerations, and predicting their values after a given time interval.ApparatusWe used a track on an incline, along with a cart and a motion sensor. In the second experiment, we added light sensors to measure the time interval of an object passing between them.Results4.4.1a) Table 1:Moving awayTurning aroundMoving towardVelocity+-Acceleration---b) Graphs:Experiment AExperiment Bc)Graph:d)Did the cart ever have a zero velocity? Yes.Does this answer agree with your prediction? Yes.How much time did it spend at zero velocity? An infinitesimal time period.Where did it have zero velocity? At approx. ½ the total time.e) What is the acceleration at the instant the cart changed direction? ~ -1 m/s2Does that agree with your prediction? Yes, the acceleration is constant throughout the run,...
