Lab Demo 1: ACCELERATION IN ACTION (Lab Demonstration and Class Discussion) SAR Physics Andrew M Kolchin Purpose: We want to observe objects in motion undergoing various amounts of acceleration. CASE I. NO ACCELERATION Here we look at a cart moving at a constant velocity. CASE II. FREEFALL 1. A 50. gram mass falling freely 2. A 100. gram mass falling freely QUESTION: Do they accelerate at the same rates? 1

Unformatted text preview: a < g A massive cart (mass: M ) being pulled by a falling mass (mass: m ) QUESTIONS: 1. Do m and M move at the same speed? 2. Do m and M have the same magnitude of acceleration? 3. How does increasing m aFect the acceleration? 4. How does increasing M aFect the acceleration? 5. What is the acceleration if m = 0 . grams? 6. What is the acceleration if M = 0 . grams? 2...
