there are two parts which i am uncertain about, they are the results table and the graphs.

for part one as the mass is constant do i just average out the acceleration and then use that to find force using F=MA?

**bobpursley**, Saturday, September 20, 2008 at 9:05amYes, generally that is the way to do it, because of the uncertainty of measursing acceleration.
