Demo: Newton's Second Law (Hanging Mass)
Attach a string to the force sensor on the cart and put a mass hanging over a pulley to pull the cart on a level track. The force and acceleration are constant. Then add a mass bar to the cart to see the decrease in acceleration while the force on the system remains the same. Add more mass hanging over the pulley and see the increase in force and acceleration.
