1 nd NEWTON'S 2 LAW ON AN INCLINE PLANE OBJECTIVE In this experiment you will use Newton’s 2 nd Law and the equations of motion to calculate the velocity of an object (glider) at the bottom of a frictionless, incline plane when it is released from rest. First, you will calculate the expected velocity by applying Newton’s 2 nd Law ( F net = M A ), neglecting friction, to the glider at the bottom of the incline plane. Next, you will calculate the experimental velocity of the glider, using two different methods, by applying the kinematic equations of motion. We will then compare the experimental velocities to the expected velocity: 1. Calculate the expected velocity V theo of an object (glider) at the bottom of an incline plane when released from rest by applying Newton’s 2 nd Law. 2. Calculate the experimental velocity V exp of the glider by two different methods using the kinematic equations of motion. 3. Compare V exp with V theo .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
