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.

Repeat this above prcedure 5 more times for the other mass increments.
