Unformatted text preview: agreed with our hypothesis. Acceleration was constant after the initial push we asserted on the car. Data The ramp of the incline was 8.8 degrees. The mass of the car was 230 grams. In order to find acceleration we did gravity * (Height of track/ track length) = acceleration. The data all comes out to prove the acceleration is constant. Conclusion Once your hand is off of the car the only acceleration force acting on it is gravity. Acceleration due to gravity is a constant, and that constant is 9.8 m/s (squared)....
