Unformatted text preview: the blocks when they have moved a distance H starting from rest in a time t . Your expression will be in terms of H and t . That is a = a(H, t ). This expression will give the experimental acceleration. The PROCEDURE 1. Setup apparatus as shown on equipment section. 2. Choose M 1 = 180g and M 2 =150g. 3. Adjust M 1 and M 2 so that M 1 falls through a height H 130 cm. 4. Release M 1 from rest and measure the time of fall t for a total of 5 runs. 5. Repeat steps (2) and (3) for M 1 = 230g and M 2 =200g. 6. Calculate a exp and a theo for each set of data. 7. Construct a data table like the following: H(cm) M 1 M 2 t 1 a 1 t 2 a 2 t 3 a 3 t 4 a 4 t 5 a 5 a ave a theo %error 130 130...
