Newton's Second Law of Motion

Newton's Second Law of Motion

Authored by Cynthia D'Souza of the De La Salle Institute, this lab is intended to verify Newton's Second Law of motion by (a) subjecting a body to multiples of a force; (b) subjecting two bodies to the same force and qualitatively describing what happens; then quantitatively, the acceleration produced by a gentle ramp. Data is collected, analyzed and graphed. This appearance was this website is certainly not flashy. This being said, it is still an effective resource for instructors looking to either enhance or create new aspects in their curriculum.
