Daejin (Bryan) Kim PHY131L 1/30/07 PHY131L REPORT – Vectors Objectives 1. To apply magnitude and direction of vectors in real life situations Equipment Force table Four pulleys Metal ring Four weight hangers String Two slotted weight sets Small weight set Protractor Ruler Procedure Using the force table, we mounted 240g on the 0 degree mark, 150g on 60 degree mark. Then we tried to put a third weight that would cancel out these two vectors, by trial and error. Using strings and pulleys, we tried to minimize the effect of friction string had on the force table. Also, we put a ring in the middle of the table to tie the string to see when the vectors cancel. If the ring ends up perfectly in the middle, the vectors have cancelled out. After the first trial and error experiment, this time, we tried to predict the equilibrant vector. We mounted 160g on 0’, 200g on 90’, 250g on 200’. We graphed these vectors out, and then added them together to find a sum of three vectors. By adding 180’ to the sum of the vectors, we found the equilibrant vector to cancel out all three vectors. Also, we

    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.
