A mass, which is connected to a cart via a silk thread, drops to the floor. The resulting motion of the cart will be recorded by way of a video camera and evaluated with the "measure Dynamics" software. The relationship between distance and time, velocity and time, and the relationship between mass, acceleration, and force will be determined for a uniformly accelerated
rectilinear motion with the aid of the demonstration track. In addition, the conversion of potential energy into kinetic energy will be represented graphically as well as by integrating the various forms of energy into the video in the form of bars.
1.Determination of the distance covered as a function of time.
2.Determination of the velocity as a function of time.
3.Integration of the velocity into the video.
4.Graphical representation of the conversion of potential energy into kinetic energy while demonstrating the law of conservation of energy.
5.Integration of the potential, kinetic, and total energy into the video.
