Twiness Xu Per.2 01/30/18 Circular Motion Lab Purpose: to explore circular motion and to analyze the relationship between centripetal force, radius of the path, and tangential velocity. Abstract: to understand that the centripetal force for an object to continue moving in a circle that is at a constant radius, at constant speed. The experiment was carried out by three parts to understand the relationship among hanging mass, radius of the path and centripetal force. To calculate the centripetal force, the weight of revolving mass, hanging mass, radius and time are necessary. Material: revolving mass, hanging mass, string, tube, tape (used as marker), timer. Illustration: FBD (Free Body Diagram): Procedure and Methods: Procedure Part I: Vary the centripetal force while the radius is held constant.
