Today is the last day to work on your lab in class.  I will do a refresher of the analysis if you need it.  

We'll also finish outstanding quiz/test corrections. 

Homework:  Lab due Tuesday to Google Classroom.  Try to finish tonight so that you have at least a day to proofread.  The conclusion to your lab should be quite simple and contain three concise parts:
  • Please restate the FINAL relationship between force, mass, and motion (reiterate the equation).  Put a sentence or two around the relationship, but do NOT reiterate the whole experiment.  You may want to talk about the finding about the "motion" by describing the motion of a system experiencing a constant force.  
  • Talk about sources of experimental error and how each of these sources of error might affect your proportionality constant (would consideration of each source of error make that number bigger or smaller).
  • Talk about implications and applications to the real world.  
Also, make sure to watch the video for next class.
