Name: Force vs. Time on a Dynamics Cart

Category: Dynamics

Date Added: 03 December 2014 - 10:59 AM

Submitter: Flipping Physics

Short Description: None Provided

When the forces in a free body diagram don’t change students often think that Newton’s Second Law will yield the same results. This demonstration shows that is not true. This is a step-by-step analysis of tension force as a function of time for a dynamics cart in motion on a horizontal track.
