# Procedure for Dynamics Discovery Lab Report

## Recommended Posts

Is this where we're supposed to talk about formal lab reports?

I'm a little confused about the procedure section. Since there is already a procedure written out on the lab itself, are we allowed to just copy down those steps? Or are we supposed to write out our own?

You'll want to put it in your own words, but the basic procedure on the lab handout should be quite similar! Other lab report format details can be found at: http://www.aplusphysics.com/courses/regents/labreport.html

Alright. Thank you!

Newton’s second law states that the force of an object is equal to the mass of the object times its acceleration. In our dynamics discovery lab we used this law as the bases of our conclusions and calculations. We had two objectives going into this lab objective one was to determine the relationship between net force and accelerations of a system when the mass was held constant. Out second objective was to determine the relationship between the mass of a system and the acceleration of the system when the net force is held constant. Through this lab we gained a full understanding of net force and acceleration and mass and acceleration.

The objective of the assignment was to determine the relationship between net force and the acceleration of a system when the mass of the system is held constant, and to determine the relationship between the mass of a system and the acceleration of a system when the net force is held constant. We proved Newton’s second law of motion to be correct by determining that when there is a larger net force the acceleration is larger. We also determined that when the mass of a system is larger and the net force is constant, the acceleration of the object is constant.[ATTACH=CONFIG]289[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]290[/ATTACH]
