From The Physics Classroom’s Physics Interactive http://www.physicsclassroom.com Analysis: 1. What affect does a doubling of the net force have upon the acceleration of the object? Be quantitative. (Don't just say it decreases or increases; indicate the factor by which acceleration decreases or increases.) Identify a set of two trials that support your answer above: 2. What affect does a tripling of the net force have upon the acceleration of the object? Be quantitative. Identify a set of two trials that support your answer above: 3. What affect does a doubling of the mass have upon the acceleration of the object? Be quantitative. Identify a set of two trials that support your answer above: 4. What affect does a quadrupling of the mass have upon the acceleration of the object? Be quantitative. Identify a set of two trials that support your answer above: 5. Lab partners Vera and Bill Confuzzens attempted to use Trials 5 and 8 to show the affect that a doubling of force has upon the acceleration. Explain why these two trials cannot be used to show the affect of force upon acceleration. ©The Physics Classroom, All Rights Reserved This document should NOT appear on other websites.
