Anandhu Nadackanal Student #:- 656222326 Author:-Anandhu Nadackanal Lab Partner: Curtis Blake Sistare Project:- Newton's Second Law Project No:-3 Due date:- March 2, 2011 Physics 211L Section 007 Wednesday, 2:30-4:30 We verified Newton's Second Law for one-dimensional motion by timing an accelerated glider moving along a flat track. We varied both the accelerating force and the mass of the glider. We found that for a given force the acceleration of the glider was inversely proportional to the mass of the glider, in agreement with Newton's Second Law

In this experiment we verified Newton’s Second Law by measuring the acceleration of a system subject to a net external force. Newton’s second law states that the acceleration a & of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on the object and inversely proportional to the object’s mass m. Newton’s second law can be expressed as an equation using F = ma The experiment was conducted using a cart rolling on a smooth, flat, level track. One end of a
