Section 13 Experiment 3 Rotations Abstract In this experiment out goal was to determine the force in Newtons using data collected during the lab. The force in the spring was calculated using mass m, and gravity. Using an apparatus, three distances and two different masses we were to determine the period, T and use all of this data to calculate force. We expected the force in the spring and the opposite force to equal each other. Theory This lab was focused around the concept of force and centripetal acceleration. Newton’s first law states that every body remains in its state of rest or uniform motion unless an external force acts on it. Newton’s second law states that the force acting on an object is equal to the mass of that object multiplied by gravity. Angular speed is the angle the object travels over time. Its equation is as follows: The velocity of an object in circular motion is related to the angular speed and the radius of the circle it follows.

    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.
