Objectives : The purpose of this experiment was to allow the student to examine an inkjet trail left by a moving car. The position of the car as it moves along the frictionless track would be observed and the student could further calculate the given gravely, velocity, force, and acceleration. The general plan of attack for this experiment will use Newton’s second law. Experimental Procedure : To start this experiment we first had to calibrate the air tracks to make sure that they were level. After determining that they were level we then proceeded with task one. For this task we first placed two wooden blocks under one side of the track to give it an angle. Then we placed the car on the track and turned on the motor for the track. Using the car with no weights we made a few practice runs to get the feel of the experiment. Then we placed the inkjet paper on the track and proceeded with the experiment. the timer was set to go off every .05 seconds so that it would send a small amount of ink on the paper as it went down the track. After making one run down the track we used to information to calculate the force
