FBD Review

1/3  Using photogates-acceleration, Newton's Law review, Using Aviary (F=ma), definition of pressure
HW #1
Newton's 2nd Law with Photogate Problem:  In this lab, you can measure the acceleration of a cart using photogates.  When using the photogates, state 1 is the time from the start when the gate if first blocked and state 2 is the time when the gate is unblocked.  Using two different masses for the hover puck (the frictionless object on the track) and the hanging mass, you can calculate the acceleration from the data and then calculate the expected acceleration using a FBD for the hover puck and the hanging mass.  Hopefully the answers will match!
