written by Cynthia D'Souza
This lab is intended to verify Newton's Second Law of motion by  (a) subjecting a body to multiples of a force; (b) subjecting two bodies to the same force and qualitatively describing what happens; then quantitatively, the acceleration produced by a gentle ramp. Data is collected, analyzed and graphed.
