    Force, Mass and Acceleration

    Purpose: - What relationship exists between the acceleration of an object, its mass, and the net force applied?

    Hypothesis: -

    Spell out Newton's law -- what is the equation relating F, m and a?

    Once you have that equation, what would you hypothesize about a, if you knew the mass of an object and the force applied to it? How would you go about testing this hypothesis?

    I Have That Result
    Can U Check
    Is That Right?
    PLZ CHECK LAST ONE MASS*ACCLERATION
    IS THAT RIGHT?

    Parts of it do not look correct. First, what's a cart? Are you using carts of different masses or different numbers of carts or something to check F=ma experimentally?

    Also, I don't know what the [F] is at the top of each column. The letter "F" is usually reserved for force, and units are usually put in square brackets []. You can leave the units in the round parenthesis () if you want, but what is meant by [F]?

    Hard to tell, but the numbers looked cooked up, instead of being the results of an experiment. Is this just a thought experimen? What exactly is the problem statement? Please be specific.
