Incline Friction Experiment

Question)

a)Determine the acceleration for each trial at each angle and record it in a table.
Note that if the x-axis is down the incline, and if the tray is released from rest, then the tray’s acceleration a and velocity v are given by
2 2 x=-atand v-at, where t is time.
If one measures x(t) and plots, x versus t2, then for constant a, the result will be a straight line with gradient a/ . If one plots v versus t, then the result will be a straight line with gradient a.

b)Calculate the average acceleration for each Friction Tray and use the average acceleration and the angle to determine the coefficient of kinetic friction.
