Huynh, Anne July 17, 2008 Partners: Vinh Dang, Ben Lee, Tania Gomez Torque Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to study the role of torques in the equilibrium of a simple lever. We will demonstrate that the torque due to a force is equal to the force times the distance between the force’s line of action and the axis of rotation. Summary: Mass of Actual (kg) Theoretical (kg) % Diff. Meter Stick 0.0829 0.083 0.12 The summary table above displays two values for the mass of the meter stick. The first number is the actual weight of the meter stick when we put it on the electronic balance and converted the

Unformatted text preview: value from grams to kilograms. The theoretical value was achieved through calculations for torques in equilibrium. The percent difference between these two values is 0.12%. Experimental Errors: An experimental error could be inaccurate weighing on the electronic balance. It should be plus or minus .001 grams. Another factor is our measurements because the ruler can only be read to the nearest millimeter. The measurement for the center of mass was therefore read to only a certain degree of accuracy. The percent difference for this experiment is 0.12%....

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.
