Experiment 10: Torques, Equilibrium, Center of Gravity1/21/2017Student Name:Amna MalikSection Number:PHYS 1401 S4LInstructions1)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.Using the source of error in your answer above, describe in a QUANTITATIVE way how large a measurement error is needed to account for a difference of 1% between the measured CW and CCW torques in PART A, B, or C. Describe IN DETAIL how you obtain this estimate. Attach your completedResults1)In PART A the weight of the meter stick is not included in the calculation of CW and CCW torque. Why?Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph.2)What is the percentage difference between your CW and CCW torque magnitudes in PART A, B, & C? What is the most likely source of measurement error in this experiment?Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph.3)Using the source of error in your answer above, describe in a QUANTITATIVE way how large a measurement error is needed to account for a difference of 1% between the measured CW and CCW torques in PART A, B, or C.
