What is the symbolic mathematical equation for velocity vs. time for constant acceleration?
What is Newton's 2nd law of motion to calculate the acceleration of a mass if the force and mass are known?
From the best linear fit of the velocity graph, obtain the acceleration for each different thrust. Calculate the mass of the cart. The mass should be identical for all "experiments"
