## Homework Statement

So basically we allowed a cart to role down an incline plane and we recorded the results with a ticker taper. Now there are a couple of questions that my teacher asked that I do not fully understand.

This entire section is a bit shady. I do not fully understand what the hell a represents?

Now, the actual velocity vs. time function should be (this was worked out with calculus):

v(t) = 331 t + 52 we'll call this the 'accepted value'

Remember that this is written in slope-intercept format, so the accepted values are:

a = ____________ mm/s v(0) = 52mm (accepted values)

Using the interval velocity vs. time graph, Excel worked out the velocity function as

v(t) = 326 t + 41 we'll call this the 'measured value'

Remember that this is written in slope-intercept format, so the measured values are:

a = ____________ mm/s v(0) = 41mm (measured values)

What should v(0) actually be? _______________
