Unformatted text preview: (read by looking at the scale on the top surface of the force table) and the weights applied. The three parts of the procedure include finding the reverse vector, demonstrating the equivalence of the effect of a single force to that of its two components forces and lastly, verifying the component method for the addition of three vectors. In the end, our results supported and validated the purpose of the lab exercise. Experimental Errors: We ran into a few minor errors while completing this lab. The more frequents error was in our measurements. There was friction is the wheels which contributed to inaccurate measurements. It was also difficult to get the exact degree on the force table. Ultimately, the calculated error was 0.02% for this lab....
