# Compare the graphs of force vs time and acceleration

This preview shows page 4 out of 4 pages.

1.Compare the graphs of force vs.time and acceleration vs.time for a particular trial. How are they different (aside from the obvious fact that they are different values being recorded at the same time)? How are they the same? NOTE: Calculations are not necessary to answer this question. Descriptions in wordsare sufficient.2.What type of proportionality, if any, exists between the net force on an object and the acceleration of the object? Explain. 3.What quantity does the slope represent?4.For each trial, comparethe slope of the regression line to the mass being accelerated. Use percent difference to compare the values. Also state whether or not your slope values are within the uncertainties of the mass measurements.State in your own words the results of the experiment. Be specific — cite numerical and graphical results and discuss the meaning or significance of the results. Include a statement concerning percent differences, uncertainties, and sources of error when applicable. SUPPLEMENTARY QUESTIONS 1.When you push an object, how does the magnitude of the force affect its motion? If you push harder, is the change in motion smaller or larger? Do you think this is a direct or inverse relationship?2.Assume that you have a bowling ball and a baseball, each suspended from a different rope. If you hit each of these balls with a full swing of a baseball bat, which ball will change its motion by the greater amount? Why?3.In the absence of friction and other forces, if you exert a force,F, on a mass, m, the masswill accelerate. If you exert the same force on a mass of 2m, would you expect the resulting acceleration to be twice as large or half as large? What type of relationship exists between mass and acceleration, assuming a constant force?4.What are the units of the slope of the force vs.acceleration graph as it is displayed? Reduce the units of this slope to basic SI units (m, kg, s). Show all steps.
