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.
