Introduction: The objective of the experiment was to measure the constant acceleration of an object using several methods using different techniques to measure the object. If there is a constant acceleration, the velocity is given as V ƒ = V o + at. V o is the intial velocity at time equals zero. The velocity of the object of distance is using the function v ƒ ^2= V o ^2+ 2a(x-x o ); in this equation the initial velocity at initial distance (x o ). Procedure: 1. In order to do this experiment, it is vital that you have a universal lab interface, LoggerPro, two photo gates, an air track, Microsoft excel, a glider, an acoustic distance sensor, and a sound reflector. 2. First you have to place the first photo gate 30 cm from the top of the track. 3. The second photo gate should be placed 50 cm from the top of the track 4.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
