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

    This accounts for the 'error' in reading at the start, but still there is an error in the overall gradient of the graph. Conclusions: Overall my results were not as I would have expected them to be, but I had provided sufficient reasons for this.

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

    Ranges and amounts To make this investigation successful, we must choose a sensible range, and amount, of readings to record in order to come up with a useful and informative outcome. For example, in the primary experiment it would be pointless to experiment with heights ranging from 1cm-2cm because the speed difference would be minor.

  1. Acceleration, Force and Mass

    I feel that I have researched enough evidence but now it is time for me to consider the method from which I will take my results and with that my conclusions and evaluations. Firstly I will need to measure the acceleration of an object and there is an instrument available to me that can perform this task very well indeed.

  2. Investigating the amazingness of theBouncing Ball!

    The metal wieght will keep the ball under water so that successful temperature change is achieved, the weight will also have to be metal, as metal is a ver.y good thermal conductor, transferring as much heat as possible to the rubber ball from the water bath.

  1. 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.

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

    of the little time it takes to record the 15 or so results. I feel that this is a good compromise between range and time. I will take readings three times so as to lower the chance of error and anomalous results.
