An air track glider, 8.0 cm long, blocks light as it goes through a photocell gate. The glider is released from rest on a frictionless inclined track and the gate is positioned so that the glider has travelled 96 cm when it is in the middle of the gate. The timer gives a reading of 333 m/s for the glider to pass through this gate. Friction is negligible. What is the acceleration (assumed constant) of the glider along the track?
