Objective: The dependance of the centripetal force on mass, radius, and angular velocity will be studied by rotating masses in horizontal circular paths at constant angular velocities. Setup: View the attached figure. Brief description of procedure: Obtain ‘bob’ mass. Set the radius at 15cm. Hang 15 gram mass on the hanger, and reccord on the data table. Align the indicator with the orange disk. Remove the mass, and rotate the shaft as to place the orange disk in alignment with the position indicator. Have the partner click start on the computer software. After 10 turns the software stops counting. The computer displays a graph of counts vs time. Divide by 10 to get the period and record the valur in th table.

    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.
