Unformatted text preview: motion detector to make a clicking noise. Apply a gentle push to the cart with the card attached. It should hit the stationary cart and they should stick together. Inspect your graph. It should resemble the graph shown here.If it does not, repeat the experiment. If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your graph after 10 15 attempts, consult an instructor. Have an instructor check your graph and initial your report. Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Part II: Conservation of Momentum Data Analysis Click the examine button in LoggerPro. Move your cursor so it coincides with the collision point. From the pop up box on your graph record the time of the collision and enter it in Table 3 of your Activity Log. To determine the velocity before the collision, click and drag your mouse to highlight the 10 points before the collision. Click on Analyze, then Linear Fit. A box will pop up displaying the slope and intercept. Double click on this box and check the box marked Standard Deviation for slope. Enter your results in Table 4. Highlighting 10 points on your graph after the collision, determine the velocity and associated uncertainty after the collision. Enter your results in Table 4. Print your graph: In LoggerPro choose then . Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Part II: Conservation of Momentum Data Analysis Using the equations from Prelab 1, determine the total momentum both before and after the collision. Include uncertainties. Record your results in Table 5. QUESTION 2: Is the momentum before the collision equal to the momentum after the collision within the uncertainty? Does this match your answer from Question 1? Comment. Physics...
