Experiment 8: Centripetal Acceleration 2/18/2018 Student Name: REPORT Section Number: Instructions 1) Follow all of the lab activity steps given in the Lab Procedure. 2) 3) 4) Attach additional sheets of paper that clearly (NEATLY) show all of your calculations performed during this experiment. Results 1) Did your data display the expected relationship between the centripetal force and angular speed of the rotation? What evidence do you have of this? What changed when you changed either the mass or radius? Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph. 2) When the value of the revolving mass and the radius of its path are both held constant, what theoretical effect on the period does increasing the radial force have? Did you observe this experimentally? Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph.
