LAB 112 Mehar Ghei LABORATORY EXPERIMENT REPORT Name: Mehar Ghei Group Members: Nicole Tran, Yvunne Chen, Nakib Junayed Experiment Date: Tuesday, September 28, 2010 Course Name: PHYS 111A Section: H01 Instructor: Beidi He LABORATORY #112 Newton’s Second Law 1. OBJECTIVE To calculate acceleration, time, and velocities of the movement of a glider attached to a hanging mass on a frictionless air track, using Newton’s Second Law. 2. THEORETICAL BACKGROUND Newton’s Second Law of Motion is, = F ma In this lab, the force is caused by the masses through the tension in the string. The kinematic equation, = + ( - ) v2 v ̥2 2a x xo allows us to calculate the velocities based on the displacement of the glider. 3. EQUIPMENT The equipment used for both parts of this lab: Air track Box for elevation Mass Glider attached to string Hanging mass Rulers Photo gates Logger Pro software Page 1 of 3
