Purpose: This lab deals the gravity, vectors, and forces. Part 1 of the lab deals with calibration of the force sensor. Part 2 deals with the measurement of the force that the dynamic cart applies to the force sensor and then calculating the force that is parallel to the track surface. Apparatus and Method: The equipment used in this experiment is the dynamic cart, track, lab stand, masses, meter stick, ruler, balance, force sensor, and data studio, The method of this lab is to set the track at a know angle and measure the force of the car on the force sensor. After we measure a force with the force sensor we can calculate the force vector that is parallel to the track plane using the following formula. θ SIN F F W p = Calculation & Graphs: The slope of the line for the measured force data set was calculated using the following formula.

### What students are saying

• 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.
