A Demonstration of Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion

Laboratory experiments were done to test whether Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion could predict acceleration. A hockey puck was released down an iced inclined plane, and measurements of displacement and time were used to calculate acceleration for three different plane angles. These measurements were compared to the theoretical model. The laboratory calculations showed accelerations for the… Continue reading A Demonstration of Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion
