soo for physics, we did a lab where we launched a cart on a track on the floor and recorded time, distance, etc. to figure out things. one of the questions on the lab is:

can you think of a simple follow-up experiment that would allow you to determine how much the cart's deceleration was affected by floor slope?

i know that there WAS floor slope because the cart would roll backwards unless we stopped it, but i can't think of a follow-up experiment. maybe something having to do with what would happen if we LET it roll back as far as it wanted to?
