Unformatted text preview: Experiment 5 1) Describe 2 things you did to make sure your equipment was working. One issue that could drastically affect the data accumulated in the experiment was the flow of air creating the almost frictionless table for which the puck could rotate on. To make sure that the puck would spin on the table with as little friction as possible we checked and made sure the holes from the air was emitted were not clogged. We verified this in two ways: 1) we moved our hands across the table feeling out any spots that could be clogged, and 2) we let the puck move about the table and checked for randomness (this randomness showed that there were no clogs by continuously pushing the puck in different directions). Another thing we did to make sure our equipment was working properly was to check that the air hose had pressure. By checking for pressure working properly was to check that the air hose had pressure....
