The purpose of this experiment was to see how sever forces act upon a small ring on a force table by adjusting these forces until the ring reaches translational equilibrium. Then the forces were added together analytically by adding their components to determine if the net force was zero, which meant that the ring was at equilibrium. The force table was leveled, then a 149.7g and a 250.3g mass were added to two of the pulleys and their positions were adjusted to 190° and 350°. The third string was positioned in such a way to pull the ring of the pin, and a mass of129.6g was added to a third pulley at 145°. The ring was freed from the pin; the resultant force on the ring was 0.11 ±0.03N. While the resultant force was not zero, many random and non random errors could have been made, causing the results to deviate from the zero. Data and Results
