Name: Abdullah Alazzani Partners: Stephanie Serna & Claudia Appiah & Fiorina Smajaj Lab # 4 The Addition and Resolution of Vectors: The Force Table The Addition and Resolution of Vectors: The Force Table Objective: How to add a set of vectors graphically and analytically to find the resultant. Introduction: In this experiment, we used the force table which is an apparatus that allows the experimental determination of the resultant of force vectors. The rim of the circular table is calibrated in degrees. Weight forces are applied to a central ring by means of strings running over pulleys and attached to weight hangers. The magnitude of a force is varied by adding or removing slotted weights, and direction is varied by moving the pulley. The resultant of two or more forces is found by balancing the forces with another force (weights on a hanger) so that the ring is centered on the center pin. The balancing force is not the resulting (R), but the force
