Lakesha Richardson Physic 1 Lab Dr. Thomas Sangrey Acceleration on a Ramp Objective: Analyze the motion on a horizontal frictionless surface. Analyze the motion down an inclined frictionless surface For each of the two kinds of motions above, predict, sketch, and test position vs . time and velocity vs . time kinematics graphs. Theoretically predict and experimentally determine values for acceleration (or deceleration) for the motion on a horizontal frictionless surface Theoretically predict and experimentally determine values for acceleration (or deceleration) for the motion down an inclined frictionless surface for two different incline angles. Investigate the effect of glider's mass on its acceleration Materials: Computer Pasco air track with accessories Vernier computer interface Masking tape Logger Pro Ruler Vernier Motion Detector Procedures : 1. Connect the Motion Detector to the DIG/SONIC 1 channel of the interface. 2. If the Motion Detector has a sensitivity switch, set it to Normal. 3.
