Analysis The results of the experiment show that the value of acceleration decreases as  the net force decreases. It also shows that there is a minimum error between the  accepted and experimental values of less than 5%, which shows that the results are  accurate. Moreover, results show that the acceleration decreases as the mass of the cart  increases. It then, shows that the error is less than 5% showing accuracy. This   test   also   shows   that   the   time   increases   along   with   the   decrease   of  acceleration following the principles of kinematics. In addition, Newton’s second law is followed only when the tension of the string  pulling the cart is equal to the tension pulling the mass or the pan, thus assuming the  two to be equal might be a possible cause of error. Further, the study shows that possible causes of error are rolling friction, human
