Experiment 7: Centripetal Acceleration 11/12/2016 Student Name: REPORT Section Number: Instructions 1) 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. Results 1) Theoretically, how does the radial force exerted on an object vary with the radius of its circular path when it is revolving: (a) at constant frequency? (b) with constant speed? Is this theory supported by your experimental results? Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph. erase this and type in your answer 2) When the value of the revolving mass and the radius of its path are both held constant, what theoretical effect on the period does increasing the radial force have? Did you observe this experimentally? Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph. erase this and type in your answer 3) When you change the revolving mass (while keeping the path radius and radial force constant), what
