Accelerometer to Channel 2on the interface. 2.Open the file “09 Newtons Second Law” from the Physics with Vernier folder.3.Attach the Force Sensor to a dynamics cart so you can apply a horizontal force to the hook, directed along the sensitive axis of your particular Force Sensor. Next, attach the Accelerometer so the arrow is horizontal and parallel to the direction that the cart will roll. Orient the arrow so that if you pullon the Force Sensor the cart will move in the direction of the arrow. Find the mass of the cart with the Force Sensor and Accelerometer attached. Record the mass in the data table. Helpful Suggestions:*If the accelerometer data seems noisy, make sure that the sensor is securely fastened to the cart. If it isn’t fastened firmly, it could rattle and introduce more noise to the data set.*It is critical that the only external force applied to the cart com through the force sensor. If the cables drag, then there will be other forces not measure by the force sensor. Move the cables with the cart
4.Place the cart on a level surface. Make sure the cart is not moving and click . Check to make sure both sensors are highlighted and click .Trial I 5.You are now ready to collect force and acceleration data. Grasp the Force Sensor hook. Click and take several seconds to move the cart back and forth on the table. Vary the motion so that both small and large forces are
