Equilibrium of a Particle Brianna Przybysz Submission Date: September 11, 2007 Instructor: Mr.Leach Phys 1113 E Cody Miller, A’Dante M c Kinnon This lab was conducted in order to test the equilibrium of a particle. This lab tested the equilibrium of a particle using to different methods: the Kennon Force Table Method, and the Parallelogram Method. No matter which method is used, the resultant of the forces and the equilibrant of the forces should be equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. We suspended mass from a kennon force table connected to pulleys. We had to balance the masses given at their given angles by putting mass on a third pulley at a specific angle. The angle and mass of the

3 rd pulley represented the angle and mass of the equilibrant. In this experiment we found the equilibrant of the two forces using the parallelogram method. We graphed our forces and then found the equilibrant using the parallelogram method. Finally we verified our data by checking the the sum of the components was equal to zero.
