Newton's Second Law of Motion applied to carts

The past Wednesday, March the 20th we brought a cart made of any material for Physics class. We went to the lab and we measure the mass and the force of our cart. Our purpose was to get the acceleration in meters per second square (m/s2) applying the formula F=ma.

Our initial mass was 0.26577 Kg. 

 First we measured the mass of the kart, than we did several trials adding some metric masses and we got the force using the "Spring Scale" and we inserted the data on a table. We did 5 trials with different masses.

 Our acceleration data is very accurate, because we test it a lot of times in every trial. 

This is Alain's Same Post we both worked on this Lab and we had the Same results!
