Force pulling cart (N)Acceleration (m/s2)Force closest to 1.0 N1.0023 N1.682 m/s2Force closest to -1.0 N-1.0000 N-1.919 m/s2RESULTS: For trial 1 the cart with all the sensors connected weight was 0.457 kg. According to the graph The closest force to 1 N after pulling the cart was 1.0058 N, and an acceleration of 2.596 m/s2. Also, according to the graph, the closest force to -1 N after pulling the cart was -1.0038 N, and an acceleration of -2.302 m/s2. For the regression line we used the F=mx+b formula. It cameout as F=.4103x-.05930. For trial 2 the cart with all the sensors connected weight was 0.5635 kg. According to the graph The closest force to 1 N after pulling the cart was 1.0023 N, and an acceleration of 1.682 m/s2. Also, according to the graph, the closest force to -1 N after pulling the cart was -1.0000 N, and an acceleration of -1.919 m/s2. For the regression line we used the F=mx+b formula. It cameout as F=.5560x+.06709..Data analysis / Calculations: 1. Compare the graphs of force vs. time and acceleration vs. time for a particular trial. How are they different? How are they the same?
2. Are the net force on an object and the acceleration of the object directly proportional? Explain,using experimental data to support your answer.
