Conservation of Energy Lab Purpose: The purpose of the Conservation of Energy Lab is to get a sense of applying potential energy, kinetic energy, mechanical energy, and friction to real world situations. Hypothesis: If the mass of the object is 0.100 kg and the angle is 30°, it will land 5.00 meters away. Materials and Equipment: stand ramp clamps photo sheet tape paper marker meter stick weight (or other object to slide down the ramp) scale Procedure: Your set up will be similar to the picture below.

Step 1: Attach a clamp with a flat plane to the stand. Clamp the board to the plane. The end of the board should be a few inches from the table edge. Record h1 (the height from the table top to the point on the ramp below the clamp from where you will release the object. Step 2: Using clear tape, tape a piece of photo paper from the end of the table to the ramp. Step 3: Place a sheet of white paper (or two) on the floor where the object will land. Measure h2 (the height from the floor to the table top).

What students are saying

• 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.
