Hello!

I was thinking about designing an experiment in which i would investigate the angle of incline of a surface and the acceleration of a toy car moving down it. I will most likely be using a stopwatch. My question is:

How should i go about calculating the acceleration without having to account for air ressistance and friction etc - or do i have t do that? I wanna keep it relatively simple.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

delta V/ delta t = acceleration

Suvat equations?

3. The attempt at a solution

I was thinking about simply taking the time and the displacement (42cm)and using this.

Possibly suvat equations but i really don't know?

Thanks!
