Apparatus:

Dynamics trolley, runway, clamp stand etc., 2 x metre rulers, top-pan balance, set-square

& stop-clock.

position

distance x

sloping

height

h angle ß runway

length n

Procedure:

1. Clamp the runway in such a way that the dynamics trolley takes time, t = 2.5 ± 0.5 seconds to roll,

from rest, distance x = 70 cm down the runway.

2. Measure this time, t three times. Calculate the average value of t.

3. In order to determine the angle of slope of the runway ß, measure height h and length n. Length n

should be at least 70 cm.

Calculate tan ß = h / n.

4. Calculate the acceleration a, of the trolley by using: x = ut + 1/2 at2

(If the trolley starts from rest, then u = initial velocity = 0).

5. Repeat for four more different angles ß with the time t varying between

about 1 and 5 seconds.

6. Tabulate your results.

7. Measure the mass M of the dynamics trolley.

8. Plot a graph of acceleration a (in m/s2) against tan ß.

Ensure that your acceleration scale goes down to at least minus 0.2 m/s2.

Draw a best fit curve. Your graph should gently curve with a negative intercept on the

acceleration axis.

9. Use your graph to find the angle ß of the runway when it is "frictionless"

(i.e. when the acceleration of the trolley would be zero).

10. Draw a tangent to your line at the point where the acceleration is zero.

Calculate the gradient G, of this tangent.

11. Record the value of the intercept I, on the acceleration axis.

12. Calculate the frictional force, F acting on the trolley at low accelerations given that:

F=MxI

13. Why is the above method of measuring angle ß better than using a protractor?
