can you please help to do this part of the question.

First you will test the relationship between the mass of an obiect and how far that object slides off the end of the ramp.
a. Write a testable hypothesis in the form “If the mass of an object (blank), then the distance it slides from the end of a ramp will (blank) because...”
b. Develop a procedure to test your hypothesis. Be careful to control all parameters you don’t want to change such as coefficient of friction, starting point on the ramp, etc. Your procedure should be specific enough so that another physics student could duplicate your experiment.
c. Make a graph of your independent and dependent variables. Use the curve fit function of your graphing program to determine a model for the relationship.
d. Draw a free body diagram (or diagrams) to support what you graphed.
e. Use the appropriate kinematics formulas and Newton's 2"d law of motion to derive a general formula relating the object's mass (m) and the distance it slides (d).
f. Write a conclusion comparing your actual data with the equation you derived.
