Procedure
For experiment A (Manually calculate the velocity)
1. Preparing a material
2. Put a car A over a track
3. Push a car A, let it moving along a track
4. Record time
5. Do step 2 to 4 again

For experiment B (Using the labquest to determine the velocity and put car
B in the middle of the tract)
1. Prepare labquest

2
2. Put car B in the middle of the track and car A at start point
3. Push a car A, let it moving along a track
4. Record the result
5. Next, increase the mass on car A
6. Push a car A, let it moving along a track
7. Record the result
8. Next, increase the mass on car B
9. Push a car B, let it moving along a track
10. Record the result

Purpose
A purpose of experiment is looking for acceleration, mass and force.
All of those variable are affect rate of momentum.

Hypothesis
If we change the mass of the object the changing of the
momentum will inversely proportional to the mass.

Background Information
Newtons Second law of motion can be formally stated as follows:
Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the
mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force
needed (to accelerate the object). However, the Second Law gives us an
exact relationship between force, mass, and acceleration. It can be

expressed as a mathematical equation: F = Ma. Simply momentum is the
product of the mass and velocity of an object, quantified in kilogram-meters
per second. It is dimensionally equivalent to impulse, the product of force
and time, quantified in newton-seconds. Newton's second law of motion
states that the change in linear momentum of a body is equal to the net
impulse acting on it.

Variable
1.Independent Variable: mass of the objects
2.Dependent Variable: velocity of the objects
3.Controlled Variable: push force, air resistance, gravity

Material
1. Stop watch
2. Rail and Two Car
3. LabQuest 2 and a Motion detector
4. Mass

Conclusion

To conclude, this experiment helps us more understand in the

lessons that we learned about Newtons Second law of motion and
Conservation of Momentum. We can apply this knowledge to our daily life.
Also, we can know more about the momentum that related to the lesson.
