Kevin Su 10/5/10 Experiment 4: Linear Acceleration Introduction This lab consists of measuring the acceleration and how it varies with the weight put on the sliding block. The mass on the hangar is constant and then you can calculate the percent error of the results. Procedure Make sure the air track is not at an angle Weigh the mass of the weight, sliding block, and hangar prior to measuring time and acceleration. String up sliding block and turn on air supply Measure its acceleration using logger pro Analyze the results adding weight has on the friction and acceleration Calculate percent error and generate a conclusion Data 4 weights on slide, 10 g on hangar (constant) .3499 m/s^2 = acceleration Mass of slide and hangar = 414.7 g 2 weights on slide, 10g on hangar Mass= 314.7g Acceleration= .4592 m/s^2 4 Weights on slide, 10g on hangar Mass= 604.8g Acceleration= .2446 m/s^2
