C a b θ B c A Experiment 2 Determining g on an incline Domnique Newallo Introduction The objective of this experiment was to examine the concept of acceleration using a kinematics graph and an incline plane. Kinematics describes the motion of an object without consideration of the forces that cause the motion. Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity over time describing the rate of change of both the magnitude and the direction of velocity. The expression a x = dvdt gives the acceleration a x as a function of time. Using data the data derived from Logger Pro software, there will be a determination if the acceleration vs. sine of a track angle is a valid. Experiment I performed this experiment as a member of a group. In order to perform this experiment, we used a computer, Vernier computer interface, Logger Pro software, Vernier motion detector, meter stick, a ramp, books, and a dynamics cart. The Vernier motion detector uses ultrasound waves to measure the distance of an object. The motion detector is used with the computer loaded with Vernier computer interface and Logger Pro software to calculate velocity, position, and acceleration. The meter stick was used to measure height ( h ) and the length of the incline ( x ). The books were used to elevate the ramp which increased the angle θ opposite from h . The dynamics cart was the object that was examined by the motion detector as it rolled down the incline.

### 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.
