Optional Practical: Inclined Plane

IB Physics: Optional Practical: Inclined Plane

In this practical you are going to investigate the motion of a trolley rolling down and inclined plane. Since the forces on the trolley are unbalanced it will accelerate down the slope at a constant rate, this means that its velocity, v will increase with increasing displacement,s down the slope. Since the trolley has uniform acceleration the usual equations apply (suvat) . In this case we are going to use the relationshipbetween...
