Experiment 10: Torques, Equilibrium, Center of Gravity7/13/2016Student Name:Madison Moore Section Number:PHYS 1401 LabInstructions1)Follow all of the lab activity steps given in the Lab Procedure.2)3)4)Attach additional sheets of paper that clearly (NEATLY) show all of your calculations performed during this experiment.Results1)In PART A the weight of the meter stick is not included in the calculation of CW and CCW torque. Why?2)What is the percentage difference between your CW and CCW torque magnitudes in PART A, B, & C? 3)Using the source of error in your answer above, describe in a QUANTITATIVE way how large a measurement error is needed to account for a difference of 1% between the measured CW and CCW torques in PART A, B, or C. Describe IN DETAIL how you obtain this estimate.
