Investigation of a simple pulley system through comparison of experimental and theoretical models.
The motion and mechanics of a pulley system all behave according to Newtonian mechanics. In theory, all moving objects should adhere to Newton's laws of motion - and so from equations derived from these laws, we can get a mathematical model which allows us to predict the motion of the object. One of the main objectives of this investigation is

was not factored into the equation. I think that, with a better, more involved model, taking into account such effect, a better result set may be obtained.
To what end would the above affect the results ? All the above steps would either alter the accelerations of the experimental data and the theoretical data, or improve accuracy in the data I already collected. Such steps would ensure a closer match between the model and the experiment.
