Newton's Second Law - Inertia

Dynamics cart w/haning weights (different forces/different masses)

F=m*a

Use the set-up illustrated below, and add small weights to the pulley end for accelerating force. Add weights to the cart as well. Use the golf tee accelerator apparatus (qualitative) or use the smart timer with 2 photo-gates. (quantitative)
