Lab Assignment Sheet Exploring Forces – The Free Particle I (Week 5) Model or Topic Explored: We will begin to look at forces and dynamics involved with free particles using the IOLab unit and some common items in your home. We are looking for a description of the forces when the net force on a particle is zero – this implies that the particle will be stationary or moving at a constant velocity. In this lab, you will be determine the coefficient of friction between pairs of materials, using this force balance. Name: Amy Marchen Date: 11-18-2017 Observables: Pulled across the table, hanging by string, starts from rest Measureables: Force, average tension, position Constants: Constant velocity Problem Statement: How does friction force depend on the normal force when an object is moved at a constant velocity?
Experiment: Procedure, Tools, Diagram of Apparatus: [In this section, please paste a digital photograph of the items used in your experiment.] Tools:
