Tutor description

Aim: To investigate the relationship between the angle of a slope and the acceleration of an object moving down that slope (a=g sinθ) Hypothesis: As the angle of the slope increases so too will the rate of acceleration of an object rolling down it, in accordance with the formula a=g sinθ

(0.5 pts)-The mass has no effect on the period because upon changing 3different masses, the period stayed approximately constant. 2- Compare your experimental outcome to the calculated theoretical value and comment on the possible sources of error.
