1.Compare and contrast the graphs of force vs.time and acceleration vs.time for a particular trial. 2.Are the net force on an object and the acceleration of the object directly proportional? Explain, using experimental data to support your answer. 3.What are the units of the slope of the force vs.acceleration graph? Simplify the units of the slope to

The units of the slope would be x , which simplifies to kg. s 2 kgm m s 2 4.For each trial compare the slope of the regression line to the mass being accelerated. What does the slope represent? 5.Write a general equation that relates all three variables: force, mass, and acceleration.
