Objective: To measure the coefficient of static and kinetic friction between the surface of the block and lab table; and To check if the collected experimental data fit normal distribution curve. Data: Experiment #1. Two bars on a block Average Standard deviation Number of meas. Static friction 3.267, N +/-0.2834, 36 Kinetic friction 2.242,N +/-0.1682, 34 Experiment #2. One bar on a block Average Standard deviation Number of meas. Static friction 1.962, N +/-0.3436, 15 Kinetic friction 1.229,N +/-0.1008, 15 Bell curve distribution. number of meas. within one std. dev. number of meas. within two std. dev. Two bars Two bars One bar One bar

Static friction 24 33 15 15 Kinetic friction 15 34 15 15 Mass of a block Mb = 0.1299, Kg Mass of bar # 1 mb1 = 0.499, Kg Mass of bar # 2 mb2 = 0.499, Kg Data analysis: 1. Calculate a static coefficient of friction in case of two bars on a block. You need to apply a formula which relates a force of friction and the weight of the system.Provide a formula, then show the formula with (numbers + units) substituted into it and a final result. fs,max = μs N the fs mean =3.267N N (weight of the system)=((0.1299+0.499+0.499)*10)N =11.279N

Therefore the co-efficient of static friction=(fs, max)/N =3.267/11.279 =0.2897 2. Propagate the error for the coefficient. You need to apply a general formula to get the

    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.
