Purpose:Demonstrate constant velocity and uniform acceleration with minimal friction
Description:Giving glider a quick push will illustrate constant velocity. Connect glider to hanging masses over pulley at end of track to illustrate uniform acceleration. A pair of optical gates can be used to time the cart between two points or to estimate its velocity at each of two points. Both cart mass and hanging mass can be varied to show the resulting relationships.
