regression line in the data table (include units). 8. Using the graphs, estimate the acceleration of the cart when a force of 1.0 N has acted upon it. Select ‘Interpolate’ from the ‘Analyze’ menu. Move the mouse across the graph and determine the acceleration (x) when the force (y) is nearly 1.0 N. Record the force and acceleration in the data table. 9. Repeat Step 8 using a force of –1.0 N. 10. Print copies of each graph. Trial 2 11. Attach a mass of approximately 0.500 kg to the cart. Record the mass of the cart, sensors, and additional mass in the data table. 12. Repeat Steps 5 – 10.
