Force and Acceleration Required Practical 60 second summary
The video shows how a glider on an air track can be used to investigate the relationship between force and acceleration.
Can you think of improvements that can be made to the experiment shown?
- The total mass in the system needs to remain constant when adding masses to the mass holder
- This can be achieved by sticking masses to the glider and then moving them one by one to the mass holder
- The track needs to be horizontal - this should be tested before starting the experiment
How could you change the experiment to investigate how changing the mass affects the acceleration?
