Kevin Lam Chris Collier Force Table Lab Lab #1 Physics 211 Lab Due: September 17, 2007-09-16 Abstract We investigated equilibrium within a force table by adjusting the magnitude and the angles used to create equilibrium. In order to adjust magnitude, we used gram weights to apply pressure on the vector. By doing so, within our report all of out force tables were symmetrical. The first one is the pulleys at 0, 120 and 240 degrees. The second one was the pulleys at 0, 90 and 217, also applying weight of 90 grams, 120 grams and 150 grams. At first one was non-symmetrical when the pulleys were positioned at 37 and 217, with different weights. On one side 100 grams were placed, on the other side 150 grams where placed, making them imbalanced. We then changed the weight on each side to be equal (150 grams each), making the non-symmetrical set, symmetrical.

Introduction In this lab we use a force table in order to set various angels with different weight into equilibrium. To achieve equilibrium, all forces must be balanced. By doing so, we study vector addition by comparing different forces and magnitude on vectors. In order to perform the lab, we used equipment such as a force table with pin, 3- pulleys. 3- weight hangers, weights and protractors. In this lab, it teaches us, at what point equilibrium is
