Lab Report 1 Introduction The objective of this lab is to determine the static and kinetic friction of an object with a known mass being dragged across a table. Materials Force sensor Woodblock Weight String Data Studio Program Procedure 1. Calibrate force sensor with Data Studio Program using 1 kg weight 2. Attach string to woodblock and force sensor 3. Place weights on the woodblock 4. Press the Tare button to zero the force senor 5. Start recording on the Data Studio Program 6. Pull the force sensor, dragging the woodblock and weights. Try to make sure you are pulling at a consistent rate to get more accurate data. Pull for a few inches then stop, and then repeat this procedure 50 times. 7. You will have to stop the Data Studio Program and record the data by hand once the program stops recording. 8. Use the program to calculate the kinetic and static friction. Static friction is the peak of each slope, and the static friction is the average of each point on the plateau- like area
