Newton's Second Law
The acceleration of a Smart Cart with Smart Fan Accessory is measured for varying forces, while keeping the mass constant. The Smart Fan is used to produce a thrust, and the Smart Cart’s sensors are used to measure both the force and acceleration of the cart. A force vs. acceleration graph is then used to determine an experimental value of the mass, which is compared to the mass found by direct measurement.PreviewDownload
