Claims from Newton’s Second Law:As the mass of the object increases, the acceleration decreases on a flat plane.As the force decreases, the acceleration decreases on a flat plane.ContextYou have completed the following practicals in class:Calculating acceleration of a car along a flat plane (guided class activity)TaskModify (i.e. refine, extend or redirect) an experiment in order to address your own relatedexperimental question.An example of a research Question: How is the potential energy of a rollercoaster affected by theheight of the track? Hint: You will be changing mass, or changing the amount of force applied on aSmart cartYou may use a practical performed in class, a related simulation or another practical related toMotion (as negotiated with your teacher) as the basis for your methodology and research question.To complete this task, you mustidentify an experiment to modify*develop a research question to be investigated*research relevant background scientific information to inform the modification of theresearch question and methodologyconduct a risk assessment and account for risks in the methodology*conduct the experiment*collect sufficient and relevant qualitative and/or quantitative data to address the researchquestion*process and present the data appropriatelyanalyse the evidence to identify trends, patterns or relationshipsanalyse the evidence to identify uncertainty and limitationsinterpret the evidence to draw conclusion/s to the research questionevaluate the reliability and validity of the experimental processsuggest possible improvements and extensions to the experimentcommunicate findings in an appropriate scientific genre
