To find the relationship between Force and acceleration by applying Newton’s second law. This experiment measures the acceleration of the object

Independent Variable: The weight of the pulley
Dependent Variable: The acceleration of the car
Controlled Variable: The factors that remained same were cart and the distance in which trolley travelled.
Newton’s second law states that “An acceleration of an object resulting from an unbalanced force is proportional to that force or inversely proportional to the mass of the body”. In this experiment, The acceleration of the body is measured with the force impacting on its acceleration. These forces are the pulley according weight added

· 1 track,
· 9 x 10g masses plus holder,
· string,
· scissors,
· dynamics trolley,
· pulley,
· top pan balance,
· stopwatch.



· Set up the apparatus as shown above.

· The slope of the runway is adjusted so that the trolley runs at a constant speed down the slope when gently pushed (as judged by the eye). In this condition there is no resultant force acting on the trolley along the slope. The runway has now been “friction compensated”

· The mass of the trolley is measured
· The distance from where it is released to just before it hits the pulley is measured
· The system accelerated by the hanging masses consists of the trolley and the hanging masses.

The heart is a muscle in all mammalian bodies that is used to pump blood and nutrients throughout the body.A sheep's heart was used in this prac because like the human heart it has four chambers and is similar in size. Two of these chambers are receiving chambers called the left and right atrium. The other two are pumping chambers

The main premise of the report was that Leibniz had been privy to Newton’s work of the 1670s.The bogus calamity of the report had been that it was done in the absence of the accused. Second, it failed to disprove Keill’s accusation and allowed Leibniz to prove his innocence. Another consideration discounted was the fact that the publication would be circulated among

How is the rocket related with Newton's three laws?

Newton’s second law is the law of acceleration. The full statement of the Newton’s second law is: “The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to its net force but inversely proportional to its mass.” This law means that when the net force increases, the acceleration increases but

If an object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts an equal force back on the first object.2”” In Newton’s first law the object that remains at rest would be the pins. The object that is in motion with a constant velocity would be the bowling ball. The bowling ball although

An Explination of Newton's Three Laws of Motion

680 words - 3 pages Isaac Newton discovered gravity when an apple had fallen on his head. He then began to think about how the apple had fallen onto his head and thus Newton’s three laws of motion were created. Newton’s first law of motion is an object in motion tends to stay in motion; an object at rest tends to stay at rest, unless another force is acted upon it. Newton’s second law of motion is about the formula for force, which is force= mass*acceleration

About Konstantin Tsiolkovsky

1012 words - 4 pages on rocketry can be related to his article, “The Theory of Gases”, which explains the “kinematic characteristics of gases”. In one of his experiments, by controlling the flow of compressed gases in a vessel, he implemented and demonstrated Newton’s 3rd Law, which states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Tsiolkovsky’s observations provided evidence that supported his theoretical conclusions; that altering the pressure
