Unformatted text preview: lick here to open a file containing the masses of the rectangular black masses. (units are grams and uncertainty is 0.1 g) Find your values and record them in Tables 1 and 2. Click here to open a file containing the masses of the cart. Search for your values and record them in Tables 1 and 2. Place the carts UPSIDE DOWN when not using them. Find the total mass for each cart and record your result in Tables 1 and 2. You may need to depress the plunger on Cart 2 by pushing in and up on the plunger. Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Part II: Conservation of Momentum Expectation Before collecting your data and calculating your results, consider your hypothesis of this experiment: QUESTION 1: Do you expect the momentum before the collision to be greater than, less that, or equal to the total momentum after the collision? Why? Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Part II: Conservation of Momentum Experimental Set-up Place both carts on the track. Place the motion detector 40 cm from Cart 1. Attach the white card to the Cart 1 so that the card faces the motion detector. The ends of the cart with velcro must be facing each other! Make sure your track is level. Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Part II: Conservation of Momentum Launching LoggerPro Make sure that your Labpro is plugged in and turned on. Plug the Motion Detector into DIG/SONIC 1 on the side of the Labpro. Launch Logger Pro by clicking on the icon below: CLICK HERE CLICK HERE Logger Pro should open with a window containing a graph of Distance vs. Time. Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Part II: Conservation of Momentum Data Collection Click collect in your LoggerPro window. Wait for the...
