What a fun lab demonstrating Newton's Second Law, pulling bikers 30 meters using a Spring Scale and Ms. Plant's incredibly cool folding bike. Now that we've run the trials, collected and organized the data, and determined the acceleration of each trial, we are ready to report on our findings.
Submit you findings using a Google sheet or other shareable document. Make sure that you allow me to edit your document, so that I can make comments and suggestions while grading it.
I've included a link to the Physics grade rubric, as well as the BDMHS Summary Grade Rubric, so that you can see exactly how to earn all 20 points for this lab.

HW 1.14 FreeBody Diagrams (5 points)
Period 6B
Assigned: Monday, October 26, 2015 Due: Wednesday, October 28 , 2015

Freebody diagrams are diagrams used to show the relative magnitude and direction of all forces acting upon an object in a given situation. A freebody diagram is a special example of the vector diagram. The freebody diagram to the left depicts four forces acting upon the object. Objects do not necessarily always have four forces acting upon them. There will be cases in which the number of forces depicted by a freebody diagram will be one, two, or three. There is no hard and fast rule about the number of forces that must be drawn in a freebody diagram. The only rule for drawing freebody diagrams is to depict all the forces that exist for that object in the given situation.
Construct freebody diagrams in your notebook for the various situations described below.
