Introduction: The objective of the lab was to apply newton’s second law to the experiment. Through this experiment, we wanted to see what the hanging mass should be in order to have the glider move a certain distance in a given time on a frictionless air track. Newton’s second law is given by the equation Σ F= ma (m is the mass and a is the acceleration). The tension of the cord connected to the hanging weight creates the acceleration force. Experimental Procedure: Part I: 1. measure the mass of the glider 2. record the masses that will be added to the glided mass 3. connect two photo gates into the ULI; connect the first photo gate to the DG1 and the second photo gate into the DG2. 4. Open LoggerPro and then Gate and Pulse Timer. Click Setup/Data Collection/Sampling. 5.
