1 Activity P07: Acceleration of a Cart (Acceleration Sensor, Motion Sensor) Equipment Needed Qty Equipment Needed Qty Acceleration Sensor (CI-6558) 1 Dynamics Cart (inc. w/ Track) 1 Motion Sensor (CI-6742) 1 Protractor 1 Block (or book) m Track System (ME-9429A) 1 What Do You Think? What happens to the acceleration of a cart as it moves up and down an inclined plane? Take time to answer the What Do You Think? question(s) in the Lab Report section. Background If a cart moves on a plane that is inclined at an angle θ, the component of force acting on the cart in a direction that is parallel to the surface of the plane is mg sin θ, where m is the mass of the cart, and g is the acceleration due to gravity. The acceleration of the cart should be g sin θ, both up and down the inclined plane. a = gsinθ θ mg SAFETY REMINDER Follow all safety instructions. For You To Do Use a Motion Sensor to measure the motion of a cart that is pushed up an inclined plane. Use DataStudio or ScienceWorkshop to record the motion and calculate the velocity and acceleration of the cart as it moves up and down the inclined plane. Compare the calculations to data from an Acceleration Sensor mounted on the cart. Data recording is set so the Trigger Rate for the Motion Sensor is 10 samples per second (10 Hz). Data from the Acceleration Sensor is measured 50 times per second (50 Hz). See the pages at the end of this activity for information about modifying a ScienceWorkshop file. P PASCO scientific p. 43

2 + SENSOR POSITION Physics Labs with Computers, Vol. 1 Student Workbook P07: Acceleration of a Cart A PART I: Sensor Calibration and Equipment Setup 1. Place the track on a horizontal surface. Use a block or book at one end of the track to raise that end. 2. Use the protractor to measure the incline angle of the track. Record the angle in the Data 3. Mount the Motion Sensor at the high end of the track. Put a mark on the track 15 cm from a 5 g CI-6558 ACCELERATION SENSOR DIRECTION OF ACCELERATION the Motion Sensor. Preparing to Record Data 1. Before recording any data for later analysis experiment with the Motion Sensor to make sure it is aligned and can see the cart as it moves. 2. Place the cart on the low end of the track (i.e., the end opposite to the Motion Sensor). 3. When everything is ready, start recording data. 4. Give the cart a firm push up the track so the cart will move up the inclined plane toward and then away from the Motion Sensor. BE CAREFUL! Don t push the cart so firmly that it gets closer than 15 cm to the sensor. Remember: The minimum distance between the cart and the Motion Sensor should be 15 cm. 5. Stop recording when the cart returns to the bottom of the track. You may want to rescale the Graph. 6. If the plot of data is not smooth, check the alignment of the Motion Sensor and repeat the above procedure until the plot is smooth. 7. Erase your sample run of data. PART II: Data Recording 1. Prepare to measure the motion of the cart as it moves toward the Motion Sensor and then back down the track. Place the cart at the low end of the track. 2. When everything is ready, start recording data. Give the cart a firm push toward the Motion Sensor. Continue collecting data until the cart has returned to the bottom of the track. p PASCO scientific P07

3 If the data points do not appear on the graph, check the alignment of the Motion Sensor and try again. 3. Set the track to a steeper angle (e.g., 10 degrees) and repeat the data recording. Analyzing the Data 1. In the Motion Sensor s plot of velocity, use the cursor to select the region of the plot that shows the cart s motion after the push and before it stopped at the bottom of the track. 2. Use the Graph display s built-in analysis tools to apply a linear curve fit. Hint: In DataStudio, select Linear from the Fit menu. 3. The slope of the best-fit line is the average acceleration. Record the value in the Data 4. In the Motion Sensor s plot of acceleration, select the region of the plot that corresponds to the cart s motion after the push and before it stopped at the bottom of the track. 5. Use the Statistics tool to find the mean value of the acceleration as measured by the Motion Sensor for your selected region. Record the mean of the acceleration in the Data 6. In the Acceleration Sensor s plot of acceleration, select the region of the plot that corresponds to the cart s motion after the push and before it stopped at the bottom of the track. P PASCO scientific p. 45

Use the Statistics tool to find the mean value of the acceleration as measured by the Acceleration Sensor for your selected region. Record the mean of the value in the Data 8. Calculate the theoretical value for the acceleration of the cart based on the track s angle and record it in the Data a = gsinθ Record your results in the Lab Report section. p PASCO scientific P07

Data Table Item Run #1 Run #2 angle of track degrees degrees acceleration (slope) m/sec 2 m/sec 2 acceleration (mean) m/sec 2 m/sec 2 acceleration (theoretical) m/sec 2 m/sec 2 Questions 1. Describe the position versus time plot of the Graph display. Why does the distance begin at a maximum and decrease as the cart moves up the inclined plane? 2. Describe the velocity versus time plot of the Graph display. 3. Describe the acceleration versus time plot of the Graph display. 4. How does the acceleration determined in the plot of velocity compare to the mean value of acceleration from the plot of acceleration? P PASCO scientific p. 47

6 Physics Labs with Computers, Vol. 1 Student Workbook P07: Acceleration of a Cart A 5. What is the percent difference between the acceleration determined in the plot of velocity and the theoretical value for acceleration? Remember, percent difference = theoretical actual theoretical 100% 6. How did the acceleration change when the track became steeper? p PASCO scientific P07
