Apparently you are supposed to have a graph with all the data you need.

 

g - a/sin beta

 

I think a is 9.8 m/s^2 where it is the acceleration of gravity.

 

I don't know, this is kind of confusing for me too. Do you know what the g is supposed to mean? Gravity?

well in my kinetamic equations it say g=9.8 but im not sure

I am pretty sure it means gravity... since gravity is like 9.81 m/s2 (・∀・ )

Velocity is     distance / time

Accelertion is   Velocity /time = distance / (time^2) 

 

The slope of the velocity-time graph IS velocity /time  WHICH IS   acceleration.

 

so they should be the same.

 

There must be more to this question.  I suppose you had to use the data you collected from some experiment?

Yes,  I had data that went along with it but I actually ended up figuring it out. thank you for your help

I posted a question under "did i solve it correctly" and its about the report I was doing about the planets. could you check if i did solve it correctly?
