Equations of Motion for Constant Acceleration

The motion of a Smart Cart as it accelerates down an incline is measured using Capstone software. Graphs of position and velocity are studied and comparisons are made to the standard equations of motion using User-Defined curve fits. Further analysis compares values found from the position graph to those found from the velocity graph.
