Step 6 repeat the last two steps two more times

This preview shows page 5 - 7 out of 15 pages.

Step 6.Repeat the last two steps two more times (trials 2 and 3). Step 7.Raise the incline by 1 cm by switching the disc under the leg of the track and repeat the last three steps. Step 8.Repeat the last step for an elevation of = 3 cm, 4 cm and 5 cm. Step 9.Prepare a graph: Graph 3: Acceleration of the glider as a function of (of the incline). - Select Pagethen Add Page…. - Click Insertthen Table. - Add two manual columns (Datathen New Manual Column…). - Double click on your table and hide (uncheck) all columns except for the two new ones. - Rename your columns and enter your values from your Table 1. - Click Insertthen Graph. - Adjust the axes. Insert titles for the graph and the axes. - Adjust the sizes of the table and graph windows in order to use as much space as possible. - Perform a linear regression showing the slope along with its uncertainty. - Print that page in landscape mode with your names in footnote. Step 10.Save your experiment file (suggested name: gOnAnIncline_YOUR_NAMES.cmbl). Part 2 Investigating Newton’s second lawIn this part of the experiment illustrated in Figure 2, we will study the motion of a mass (glider) under a constant force. The constant force is provided by a small falling mass, , (5 - 25 g). The force equation can be written as (Eq. 4), where is the mass of the glider. The gravitational acceleration can be determined from the slope of the graph of vs. . Step 1.Remove the spacer under the leg of the track. For this part of the experiment, we will work with a leveled air track (see Figure 2). Step 2.Measure the mass of the glider together with the small string attachment. This is your value for . Step 3.Put the glider on the air track at the pulleys’ end. Connect the string to the glider using the small attachment and loop the string up and down around the pulleys. Measure the mass of the hook then attach it to the end of the string. The hook must hang about 2 cm from the ground. Step 4.Bring the glider to the other end of the track (as far as the string will allow you to go). Step 5.Start collecting the data with only the empty hook pulling the glider. To do so, press Collectas your partner releases the glider. Repeat, if necessary, until you get a good run showing approximately
Exp. 3 Motion on a linear air track 6 constant slope on the velocity vs. time graph. Step 6.In the velocity vs. time graph, choose the linear area and fit it with a straight line like you did in the previous section. To show the uncertainty, double-click the information box of the slope and check Show Uncertainty. You can enlarge the graph so that the selected portion occupies the entire screen. From the fitted line, find the acceleration of the glider. Record the value in Table 2(see the Laboratory reportsection). Step 7.Repeat the last two steps two more times (trials 2 and 3).
