Results/Analysis/Physics In this experiment we test Newton’s Second Law by observing the relationship between the acceleration of objects of different mass. We test this using the equation d=1/2at 2 . In this equation d is the distance traveled by the cart, a is the acceleration of the cart, and t is the time that it takes the cart to travel the distance measured. This finds the acceleration of the cart in which we can enter into Newton’s Second Law equation F=ma. This equation states that the product of the mass of an object and its acceleration equals the force acting on the object. The results of the different masses of m 1 and m 2 are shown below. m 1 = 40 g m 2 = 15g Time (s) Accelerati on (m/s 2 ) Dista nce (m) 1.4123 0.269 0.268 3 1.4043 0.269 0.265 2 1.5127 0.269 0.307 8 1.6217 0.269 0.353 7 1.6057 0.269 0.346 8 m 1 = 20g m 2 = 35g m 1 = 30g m 2 = 25g Time (s) Accelerati on (m/s2) Dista nce (m) 1.2873 0.4484 0.371 5 1.2998 0.4484 0.378 8 1.271 0.4484 0.362 2 1.2451 0.4484 0.347 6 1.2797 0.4484 0.367 2 m 1 = 10g m 2 = 45g Time (s) Accelerati on (m/s2) Distan ce (m) 1.147 0.6277 0.413 1.1022 0.6277 0.3813 1.0925 0.6277 0.3622 1.1182 0.6277 0.3476 1.0811 0.6277 0.3672 Time (s) Accelerati on (m/s2) Distan ce (m) 0.9405 0.8071 0.357 0.96 0.8071 0.372
