Air Track Experiments

- Collect position, velocity, and time data as a cart rolls up and down an inclined track.

- Analyze the position vs. time and velocity vs. time graphs.

- Determine the best fit equations for the position vs. time and velocity vs. time graphs.

- Distinguish between average and instantaneous velocity.

- Use analysis of motion data to define instantaneous velocity and acceleration.

- Relate the parameters in the best-fit equations for position vs. time and velocity vs. time graphs to their physical counterparts in the system.

- Determine the value of the acceleration of a freely falling object.

- Compare your value with the accepted value for this quantity.

- Learn how to describe and account for variation in a set of measurements.

- Learn how to describe a range of experimental values.



One of the very important material of physics laboratories, track system experiment let’s you test titles such as Newton’s laws, motion on an incline, acceleration on an inclined plane, momentum and much more. Join our lab assistant to learn about Newton’s laws and calculations of force and velocity and so on.
