Value of Acceleration

Sin x = .028

1. Plot instantaneous velocity vs. time on a graph and determine the slope of the line and the value of acceleration.

Is my answer for the value of acceleration correct? If not, what is it?

2. By substituting the value of acceleration into a = gsinx, compute the experimental value of the gravitational acceleration g and the percent error. (accepted g = 9.81 m/s^2).
