Physics 111 Lab 6: Newton’s Laws and Relative Motion Names of the students who worked on this lab (each student should use a different color): Emmie Nguyen, Mohammed Alhumidiaherz, Veronica Hernandez, Tanner Myhre When you are done with the lab, please fill out the peer evaluation form linked below for you and your partners. If you don’t fill out a peer evaluation and defend any low scores by the day after the lab is due, you will lose 2 points. Q0uMROQ/viewform?usp=sf_link Part I: Inertia – A Body at Rest In this part of the activity, you will investigate inertia. In it, you will try to quickly remove a sheet of paper from under an object without moving the object on top. Before you begin, predict what will happen and why. Do you expect that the results will depend on the mass of the object on top? Based on the weight, NOT mass of the object, when we pull the piece of paper out from under the object as quickly as possible, all of the objects will move but very slightly depending on its mass and at the velocity of which the paper is being pulled at. Yes, the mass of each object will affect the rate of velocity of which the paper is being pulled at. Procedure: 1. Place the paper on a smooth flat surface. 2. Place a book on top of the paper. Quickly yank the paper out from under the object. 3. Try again for three other objects with different masses. 4. Record your observations for each different object below, and which objects you used. Did your results match with what you expected? (It’s okay if they don’t; that’s how we learn in science.)

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    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.
