Jorge Lopez Partner: Andy Rachlin Jl9959 2/24/10 Lab 2: Uniformly Accelerated Motion Introduction According to Isaac Newton, objects on Earth will experience a constant acceleration when free falling. In this experiment we are looking to compare the acceleration of an object due to gravity to the theoretical acceleration of gravity. To do this we will use a glider that will slide down a nearly frictionless air track and to see if the glider goes through constant acceleration. We will raise the air track to a certain angle and only let the force of gravity work on the glider to test for constant acceleration. We predict that as long as the air track is frictionless then the acceleration will be constant and will be close to the theoretical value of gravity which is 9.8 m/s 2 .

    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.
