Unformatted text preview: David Thibodeaux Lab #112 – Newton’s Second Law Objectives: 1) To apply Newton’s Second Law and one-dimensional motion equations to calculate the acceleration, velocity and time that a glider with added mass on a frictionless air track move a given distance under different hanging mass. 2) To experimentally measure the acceleration, velocity and time to check and see if your calculations 3) To get more familiar with Newton’s Second Law and one- dimensional motion equations. Materials: Air Track, Air supply with air hose, photogate attached to long stand, bumper blade with string, pulley with ball bearing, hooked weights, Glider weights, Glider, Gravitational protractor and bubble level on the counter. Setup: The air supply was first connected to the glider track to provide minimal friction. Two photogates were then setup 40 cm from the starting distance. For the first t rial, the glider track was placed on a level plane, and a glider attached to another hanging weight sustained by a pulley and string was placed on the track. The air supply was powered up, the counterweight pulled the glider across the track, and the data from the photogates was recorded....
