The Atwood Machine Lab

Objective The objective of this experiment is to study Newton’s Second law of motion utilizing the Atwood Machine and to show that the acceleration is proportional to the force causing the motion. Theory Newton’s second law of motion states that the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on the […]

Non-Uniform Motion Lab About Acceleration and Different Masses

Introduction The purpose of this experiment is to determine whether a change in mass affects the acceleration of the cart. The independent variable is the mass of the weight and the dependant variable is the acceleration. I do not think there is a control in the experiment because we do not know an absolute result […]

Investigating the effects of forces and acceleration

To investigate how the size of a parachute effects acceleration of the blutac attached to the parachute. Information I already know The bigger the surface area of the parachute the more the air resistance builds up underneath the parachute, which causes it to float gently to the ground. Safety To get to a sufficient height […]

2d Motion Lab

1) Once the simulation opens, click on ‘Show Both’ for Velocity and Acceleration at the top of the page. Now click and drag the red ball around the screen. Make 3 observations about the blue and green arrows (also called vectors) as you drag the ball around. The vectors appear to have both direct and […]
