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.
