Lab Report Experiment 2The Force TableDaniel GomezJanuary 28, 2020(Lab partners –Steven Alami, Amara Campisi, Mac Devy)IntroductionThe purpose of the experiment is to identify how the forces and angles help the vectors create abalance.TheoryThe equation for percent of error is%Error = |E−A|E∗100Where A is the approximate value and E is the exact value.The equation for component method isR=√R x2+R y2ϴ=tan−1(RyRx)Where R is the resultant and is the angle of the resultantϴProceduresWe began analyzing the table we had in the lab manual and the different vectors we were given. Then, we converted the force of the vectors into Newtons. Later, we used the force table to place weights in different positions and angles to record our results in the experimental section of our table. CalculationsR=√0.722+2.682
