(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Okay so we did this lab at school a few days ago where we had a cart and pulleys with different amounts of weights. They used photogates. By doing this we got the acceleration of the cart (measured). I figured the "accelerative force of falling mass" by using the f=ma equation.

It is looking for the Fnet force on the cart causing acceleration? would that be F = (M + m) acceleration ?

2. Relevant equations

f=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

i'm not sure...
