1 PHYS 1101-1L1 General Physics I Lab Experiment #6: The Addition and Resolution of Vectors: The Force Table Sean E. Bratton (Alaylah Salazar) September 25, 2019 Texas A&M International University Professor Qingwen Ni
2 OBJECTIVES: Be able to add a set of vectors graphically to form a resultant. Be able to find a set of vectors analytically to form the resultant. Appreciate the convenience between using graphical and analytical methods of vector addition. The objective of the experiment is to be able to compare experimental data to analytical data and determine the accuracy of both the experimental data through comparison with the analytical data, and to determine the accuracy of the analytical data that was computed through equations. THEORY: Analytical Component Method R = Rx + Ry R = R x 2 + R y 2 θ = tan 1 ( Rx Ry ) R = A + B + C Rx = Ax + Bx + Cx Ry = Ay + By + Cy EQUIPMENT USED: ITEMS Force Table with Four Pulleys Four Weight Hangers Set of Slotted Weights String Protractor Ruler Level Three Sheets of Cartesian Graph Paper
