Good hypothesis?

  1. Jan 23, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Would this be a good hypothesis for an atwood's machine lab: "from the equation (a=((M-m)/(M+m))g), we can predict that the acceleration will be proportional to the difference of the masses, and inversely proportional to the sum of the masses.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
