Fordham University Physics I Lab: PHYS 1511 (R07) Fall 2018 Experiment 5: Centripetal Motion Procedure Different weighted masses were placed on the apparatus with an equally weighted counterweight on the opposite end as the mass travelled in a uniform circle when the apparatus was turned on. Mean speed and mean force were collected during various runs. In the first portion of the experiment, the weight of the added mass was manipulated. In the second part, the voltage used by the apparatus was manipulated.

This graph shows the relationship between theoretical force and mass of the object. The slope is 0.00159 and the y intercept is -0.0035. The slope of the average force vs. mass graph is similar to the slope of the theoretical force vs. mass graph. The y-intercept differs as the theoretical force mass has a y-intercept double that of the average force graph. Generally, though, the two slopes are quite similar.

    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.
