Experiment #4:Force TableThe purpose of this experiment is to add a set of vectors using three methods:graphical, analytical and experimental to find the resultant vector.The theory behind this experiment is to measure the scalar and vector quantity. Ascalar quantity can be specified by its magnitude alone such as time (t), mass (m),volume (V), etc. A vector quantity must be specified by both its magnitude anddirection such as force (F), velocity, acceleration due to gravity (g), etc. There arethree representations of a vector: symbol, graphic and components. The graphicalrepresentations of vector sum are the parallelogram method and the triangle &polygon method. The analytical representation of vector sum is the componentmethod. We also used the Force Table that allows the experimental determination ofthe resultant force.DataTable 1:F1:200g at30.0;F2:200g at120.0|R|(N)ResultantForceθR|E|(N)Balance ForceθEMeasuredresult2.842 N772.842 N257GraphicalresultAnalytical
