Lab Two Torque Purpose: In this lab, our goals are to see how torque depends on force and a lever arm and to examine static equilibrium during an experiment. Data and Calculations: Mass of 500 gram mass and Hanger .5187 kilograms Mass of Second Hanger Alone .0202 kilograms Curve Fit of Parameter A .7222 ± .007548 Newtons- Meters Curve Fit Equation: Seeing the graph attached, the value for A is the Curve Fit Results: In this experiment, we our percent error at the 15cm location when testing for the force had a percent error of 2.62%, giving us a fairly good idea that most of this experiment was pretty accurate. We were able to do this by using the equation for torque, = r x F. τ Conclusion: In conclusion, we were able to accomplish our goals for this experiment. First, we were able to see how torque depends on force and the lever arm (radius). By now knowing the equation for torque, = r x F, it is kind of obvious why the τ radius and force of the mass are extremely dependant for the results of their torque.

    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.
