Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to gain a better understanding of the  relationship between forces on an object and the acceleration of the object. We  will be using a simple mass less pulley system developed by George Atwood  called the Atwood Machine. The pulleys slow down the effect of gravity by  countering one mass with the weight of another Procedure: The first measurement that we collected were under the assumption  that the pulley had no mass and adds no friction to the system. We used Smart  Pulley software on the computer to capture the data from the pulley. We  collected six different sets of data using different masses that equaled 600g but  the difference between the masses was increased. Then we recorded the values  of the acceleration for each of the six values that we read from the graphs. Then

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
