the string is not touching the floor. Now put something in front of the cart to prevent it from moving or take
everything off it and turn it upside down. Physics 1020 Laboratory #4 Force and Acceleration Part III: Experiment
Manipulation of the masses. Physics 1020 Laboratory #4 Force and Acceleration Keeping Total Mass Constant
The experiment is designed to keep the total mass of the system
constant, while changing the falling mass.
This is done by using small masses totaling 50.0g, and moving them from
the cart to the end of the string. This keeps the total mass constant, but
increases the accelerating force! Insert the plastic card into the cart again, and place two 20.0g masses on
the cart. LAY THEM SIDEWAYS. Tie the string to the front of the cart
and hang the other end of the string over the pulley. Hang...
