Upon what does the final speed of a trolley depend as it goes down a ramp? An in-depth plan and scientific prediction including variable discussion for the said experiment.

increased: this can be both measured and easily seen. A trolley accelerates down a ramp due to the force of gravity pulling it towards Earth. If the ramp is heightened, the trolley is therefore highe ... the trolley can go down.-Gravity. The kinetic energy gained by a trolley down a ramp is due to the force of gravity pulling it to the ground. A higher gravity level would therefore result in a higher ...
