2 Abstract The purpose of this lab is to have a better understanding about energy conservation and work. Instead of using Newton’s Laws in our apparatus, we will be using energy principles. With the help of an air glider track with pulley , photogate , the air track glider with aluminum rod, and an metal rod stand with a swinging pendulum attached to a string, we will be able to see first hand energy at it’s finest. With the pendulum in exercise 1 you will experience kinetic energy at different angles, which in turn you will be able to determine its energy. With the second exercise the air track, glider, and pulley you will be able to see potential energy in action, and you will be able to determine that value. Collecting this data and creating graphs will tell us the experimental value of gravity, g .
3 Data : Data Table 1: Exercise 1 * In order to find the velocity values v f you must use the photogate. * Each angle measure was done by hand, which might be cause for some error.
