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

and , where *t* is
time.

If one measures *x*(*t*) and plots, *x* versus
*t*^{2}, 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.
