Purpose:Illustrate the experimental basis for Newton's second law of motion
Description:This experiment uses the two gates to determine the time interval for the glider to be accelerated over the distance between them. You must therefore hold the glider so that the tab interrupts the photocell light beam immediately when the glider is released. The constant accelerating force is provided by a small mass hanging over a pulley on a low-friction tape connected to the glider.
