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

    Plus I had explained the caused of friction and air resistance acting on this experiment affected the time taken to be longer as friction acts opposite direction to the object therefore causing a longer time to travel. Therefore I can conclude that friction and air resistance must be acting at

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

    The apparatus I use was the same through out the whole experiment to keep things like the mass and friction of the trolley upon the runway. The factor of safety is very important in every experiment. Unsafe experiments tend to be inaccurate so fully meeting all of the safety requirements increases the accuracy of the experiment.

  1. Investigating the amazingness of theBouncing Ball!

    For that work to be done energy must be expended (in the case of a squash/rubber ball, it bounced onto the floor). Some of this energy is dissipated (as heat, etc), but some is stored in the defromed material and is released when the material relaxes.

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

    and one the other I will place a large flat aboard with an attached piece of white paper. This board will be attached to the stool. The light will then be turned on and the shadow of the string will then be focussed cleared on the board by moving the stools either back or forward.

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

    I would start with the lowest mass first to save getting my hands dirty. I will make sure that it is distributed consistently throughout the margarine box, otherwise it might turn upwards if the force is aimed at the lighter end.

  2. Acceleration, Force and Mass

    The next scientific that I will look at is that worked on by the famous scientist that I have already mentioned - Sir Isaac Newton. During his work he discovered some laws of motion, which are quite appropriate to what I am investigating: Law 1: Any object will continue to
