Lab Report 6: Dynamics of Motion II.

Purpose: Tested the application of Newton’s laws of motion by study the accelerated motion applying different force on an object.

Resume: Used the fellow material: air track with accessory kit, air track cart with flag, slotted mass set,
2 infrared photogates, computer timer and interface, platform balance, string and paper clip to study the acceleration of an object under an applied force. record the result from each try of this experiment, an tell what happened the force applied to it increased or decreased.

Part I
Mass of the cart (0.1899 kg) + mass of the attach (plug­in = 0.0102 kg): 0.2001 kg
Mass of paper clip: 0.005 kg
Mass of knife edge: 0.01kg
