Lab 2: Tier 2

In the lab a cart is pulled across a level track by a hanging mass. Students determine the acceleration from a velocity vs. time graph and compare this with the acceleration that can be found using dynamics.

In the video the lab is performed followed by the data being presented on a graph, which students use to complete a lab sheet. When the graph is displayed, all the data needed to complete the sheet is presented visually without a verbal description of what the data represents.
