Pushing and Pulling a Dynamics Cart



1. Background

Newton's Second Law describes: The acceleration of an object is directly proportional and in the same direction as the net force on the object but inversely proportional to the mass of the object. The experiment will investigate this relationship by pushing and pulling a dynamics cart back-and-forth on a level track using data-logging equipment.

2. Objective

Investigate the relationship of the force exerted on a cart, the mass of the cart and the acceleration of the cart as it moves.

3. Equipment List

Datalogger interface connected to a PC
Dynamics cart
Motion sensor
Force sensor bracket & bumpers
Newton force sensor
Air track
Balance (to measure mass)
