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

    Also, if looked at closely, the line of the results does not go through the origin of the graph. This tells me that, just like activation energy is needed to be overcome before a chemical reaction can occur, a force is needed to provide an initial 'jump-start'.

  2. What is the relationship between mass of an object and its acceleration?

    Using this formula I can show that my results were not very accurate due to problems in the method: F= M x A 5N = 0.85kg x A 5N / 0.85kg = 5.88 (m/s�) (Rounded to two decimal places.) This shows that the results where the mass was least were inaccurate.

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

    I predict when I do the experiment as shown in Diagram 2, I will find g = 9.8 N/Kg and if the experiment is accurate and reliable enough I may be able to show g = 9.81 N/Kg but I would be satisfied with the answer accurate to two significant figures.

  2. Investigating the amazingness of theBouncing Ball!

    The time between the bounces is used to work out the height reached by the ball between each bounce, using the equation height = -0.5 x -9.81 x(t/2)2, however this value is useless when plotted so using the decay constant: H = Hoe-^t the graph of Ln H/Ho against bounce

    the tension in the string and therefore the angle to the vertical. I will record the force displayed on the spring balance for each different angle. Method Two I will set up the apparatus as shown in the diagram, but then I will "blu-tack" a protractor to the head of

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

    is decreasing. Apparatus: * A standard stool * A margarine box and lid * A Newton meter * Between 50g and 100g of sand * Electronic scales to measure sand * A metre stick * A durable elastic band Method: Firstly, I will measure the amount of sand I will need to perform the first weight.
