  1. To determine the relationship between mass and acceleration when force is kept constant.

    And if you attach more mass on the hook, then you would have a greater acceleration, so it goes at a greater velocity, so then less air resistance. From these facts I can begin to understand why my graph looks the way it does.

  2. In this experiment I aim to find out how the force and mass affect ...

    Evaluation I believe that the experiment that I used to find the earth�s gravitational field strength was suitable and was able to accurately show "g". The measurements that needed to be taken were more complex such as the velocity, were measured by a CBL 2 data logger which is a hand held computer connected up to the light gate.

  1. Investigating the amazingness of theBouncing Ball!

    This extra energy mades the polymers more flexible. Considering that the polymers recoil faster, then less energy is transferred to the table supplying the ball with a large portion of kinetic energy to by converted into potential energy as the ball seperates from the floor.

  2. Investigate the rule of 'Force = Mass x Acceleration and so investigate the relationships ...

    The gap between each weight is 10g because it is a consistent pattern. Fair Test: A fair test must be ensured at all times in any experiment to keep results as accurate as possible so that appropriate conclusions can be drawn.

  1. Acceleration, Force and Mass

    This can be showed using an air track or some other method of reducing friction. Though the law refers to a resultant force. So the other way in which an object can remain in a constant state is if the resultant force acting on it is zero.

  2. "Oh My Elbow - Investigation Into Force Applied To Elbow Joint".

    I believe that 3 times will give me enough readings to draw accurate conclusions from, and also to take an average in case the results differ slightly. Safe Working In this experiment I see no immediate danger of threats to health, but as with all experiments, care must be taken
