- Newton’s 2nd Law i.e. F=ma
- The law of conservation of energy
- Velocity and acceleration
Newton’s 2nd Law i.e. F=ma:
a) The acceleration does vary with mass.
b) The acceleration does vary with the power levels.
|Mass (kg)||Acceleration (rpm/s)||Power Level (%)||Acceleration (rpm/s)|
Explore the Law of Conservation of Energy:
a) Computing Potential Energy = mgh
|Mass (kg)||Battery Discharge (MV)|
The battery discharge increases as the mass increases.
Calculate the average power used by the motor:
|Power Level (%)||Power (watt)|
As the Power Level increases the Power should increase as well. The slope is 0.006 and the intercept is -0.0568.
