Cynthia Myles Jonathan Riley Weston Hathorn Introductory Lab Purpose: The purpose of this introductory lab is to get a sense of working in physics lab and what to expect in upcoming labs. This lab will show a significant contrast between the commonly known expectations of a chemistry lab and the expectations of a physics lab. Through this lab, measurement, precision, and accuracy will be highly stressed through each trial. It can be determined from this experiment that motion will play a significant role in upcoming physic labs. Hypothesis: If a steel ball held by a nylon string positioned at 10° is released, then the period of pendulum will be approximately 0.6 seconds. Materials and Equipment: 30 cm Plastic Ruler Steel Ball Nylon String Tape Measure Stopwatch or Cell Phone Timer Tape Protractor Procedure: Step 1 - Collect the following materials: 30 cm plastic ruler, a steel ball, nylon string, tape measure, a stop watch or cell phone timer, tape, and a protractor Step 2 – Cut the nylon string to an accepted value.

    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.
