22 Part II Using the Accelerometer 1. A cart is rolled along a frictionless inclined track, moving uphill, momentarily stopping, and then moving downhill. (i) When the cart is moving up the ramp, predict the direction of the acceleration (circle one) Up the ramp Down the ramp No acceleration Other (ii) When the cart is at its maximum height, predict the direction of the acceleration Up the ramp Down the ramp No acceleration Other (iii) When the cart is moving down the ramp, predict the direction of the acceleration Up the ramp Down the ramp No acceleration Other 2. Get a track and a cart (attach a flag to the cart). Incline the one-meter long track so that one end is about 15-20 cm above the other. Clamp the accelerometer to the flag so that the water level in the accelerometer is horizontal when the cart is on the track. Give the cart a small push up the track and draw the water level for each case in part 1. Do not look at the accelerometer just after it is pushed since the water will still be sloshing around. Look
