James Wong Circular Motion 9/11/08 Physics 106A-005 Group 4 Objective To study the motion of a body traveling with constant speed in a circular path, and to verify the expression for centripetal acceleration. Setup 1. First we mount the apparatus onto the rotator spindle. We properly locked the apparatus into place so it will not fly out and injure anyone within the laboratory. 2. With the apparatus firmly in place, we turned the motor on, and then we witnessed the apparatus beginning to spin. We then begin adjusting the velocity of the apparatus through twisting and turning of the speed dial, until the velocity is enough for the apparatus’s pointer to match the required index. 3. With the apparatus spinning at the correct velocity, we used the revolution counter to measure the number of revolutions it makes in a minute. We did this test five more times. 4. In the second part of the experiment, we needed to find the gravitational force

    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.
