Conclusion to Motion Lab Kerreon Wright
3rd Period
Ms. Gislason
The purpose of this Motion Lab was to find the acceleration of a steel marble going down a straight track six different times to figure out how an object’s mass affects acceleration. It doesn’t due to Newton’s second law of motion. There were six different accelerations for each trial and they are: 7.88 m/s squared, 6.78 m/s squared, 6.07 m/s squared, 5.57 m/s squared, 4.32 m/s squared, and 5.11 m/s squared. It’s possible to use any two points to figure out and calculate acceleration due to gravity. Sir Isaac Newton used the word “mass” as a synonym for “quantity of matter.” Today, we precisely define mass as a “measure of inertia of a body.” The more mass an object has the more difficult it is to change it’s state of motion, whether it is at rest or moving without net force acting on that body. In other words, without an outside force a body will remain still if still, if moving, keep moving in the same direction at a constant speed. The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on it and is inversely proportional to its mass. Also, the direction of the acceleration is in the direction of the net force acting on the object. Mathematically, this proportionally. In other words, if the mass is constant, the force and acceleration are directly proportional which is corresponding in two states. To calculate the acceleration of the ball at the time of impact, subract the ball’s initial speed (which is zero) from it’s final speed and divide by the time it took to hit the targer. In this lab, acceleration is independent of mass, but does depend on diameter (since the ball is rolling, not sliding or free-falling) the force imparted to the target ball had (about) the same acceleration, but different masses. One of the possible conditions of motion used is: Rest, from the steel marble starting at the top of the inclined track at 0 then rolled down, causing another...

...equal and opposite reaction.
The beads slid from side to
Side in the dish. They wanted
To stay in one place, so they
Resisted motion.
As one person pulls on the
scale, the other side shows
the same Newton count.
Both scales say 7.
This occurred because every
action has an equal and
opposite reaction.
They demonstrated the first law because the beads resisted motion
unless acted on by the shaking.
The 2nd law shows because the bigger beads need more force to...

...Fan Cart Lab
We did a fan cart for our physics class the other day. To set up the lab first, we measured the effect of the mass of the fan cart on the acceleration of the cart. The mass of the fan cart was the independent variable and acceleration was the dependent variable. We kept the speed of the cart on medium, and calculated the acceleration and motion. As a result, we had figured out that the bigger the mass the slower the acceleration, as we...

Abstract
A ball is tossed obliquely. The vectors of position and velocity are measured.
The acceleration is calculated.
Introduction
A toy company is now making an instructional videotape on how to predict the position. Therefore, in order to make the prediction accurate, how the horizontal and vertical components of a ball’s position...

...Physics 1 Lab - Section 001
CP1 Lab Report - Projectile Motion
October 12, 2009
The purpose of Lab Assignment 1 was to analyze projectile motion. In doing so, we determined the initial velocity of the ball shot horizontally from the spring loaded projectile launcher. Also, we verified the angle at which the projection of the ball would produce a maximum range. Lastly, we predicted the range that a ball would...

Newtons Three Laws of Motion:
There are three laws of motion that have been stated by Sir Isaac Newton during the sixteenth century that are looked upon even today.
The first of these laws states that an object will stay in at rest or in a constant velocity unless a force acts upon it. In simplest terms this means that if u place an apple on the table it isn't just going to roll off.
The second of these laws states that when a...

...Abstract
In this lab experiment the range equation will be used to calculate range of the launched rocket, initial velocity and distance traveled. Various projectiles will be tested at various angles and table heights for experiment one. Results will be compared to initial calculations. Despite human error and calculation error, the results still correlated with the hypothesis.

Acceleration is constant at 9.8 m/s2 because of the force of gravity....
