Unformatted text preview: Which is shown on the graph above. The slope of the line would be 433.6, while the intercept is 140.5. So that concludes that it is not equal to the mass of the glider. But it is relatively close to the correct slope range. It is off by about twelve. The slop decreases dramatically if you use the ∑F= sqrt(2)*ma. So that definitely is not the correct form for Newton’s 2 nd Law. In conclusion, my experiment did indeed confirm Newton’s 2 nd Law of ∑F = ma....
