Mario DeLaPaz 111A Kui Chen Objective To predict from Newton’s Second Law the hanging mass that will make a glider on a frictinless air track move a given distance in a given time. Theoretical Background F=ma , a=constant The tension connected to the hanging weight creates the acceleration. There is no friction force at all in the expirement. The tension and acceleration can be found by drawing a FBD and then using Newton’s Second Law to each body. Equipment List 1. Air track 2. Air supply with air hose 3. Photogate attached to long stand 4. Bumper blade with string 5. Pulley with ball bearing 6. Weight Hanger with weight Procedure Calculate the actual value of the gliders distance and the gliders initial and final speed to a certain point. Calculate it making sure you include the weights on the glider. The distance would be at x=.30m. After that, calculate the velocity of the glider when it passes both photo gates. After you have done that, you then have to hang the value of the masses
