Lab # 6: Energy PI: Lucy Queen DA: Haley Johnson Introduction : Haley Johnson (DA) The purpose of this experiment was to determine why the total energy if it does follow the law of conservation of energy is not linear when graphed. A summary of our findings is that it is a combination of random uncertainty and because the energy is being transferred through work done by releasing the weight on the string. Analysis : Haley Johnson (DA) Our results can be displayed here in the graph below, you can see how the when the total energy is graphed it definitely doesn’t remain constant. TE graph: You can see that in the beginning when the weights first pulled on the system the total energy goes up, and then eventually levels out a little more but still bounces back and forth during the

    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.

    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.
