F16 Physics 2BL Lab 01 Pre-Lab Date of labs: 10/4 10/6 Section to Read in Taylor: Chapter 1 & Chapter 2 Pre-Lab Questions: 1. During the MATLAB assignment you performed in lab last week, in part B you generated a fitted plot of position vs. time. Based upon the fit parameters that MATLAB generated for you, what would be the velocity of the cart at t = 7 seconds (assume all these values are exact)? Also, be sure to include your fitted plot from lab. (1 point). 2. During the MATLAB assignment you performed in lab last week, in part C you generated a sine wave function plot of position vs. time. Based upon the fit parameters that MATLAB generated for you, what would be the position of the mass at t = 3 seconds (assume all these values are exact)? What would you report as your uncertainty, σ, in your angular frequency value, b? (1 point) 3. [You don’t need to turn in any work for this problem; just do the exercises to familiarize yourself with estimation and uncertainty. There may be questions on lab quiz 1 related to these

    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.
