Introduction Objective: The purpose of this lab is to measure the centripetal force that hold the object and compare it to the theoretical value. Since it is difficult to measure the velocity of the body directly, we will instead compute the velocity from quantities that re easier to measure. The magnitude of the velocity vector can be determined by measuring the distance that the object travels per unit time. If T is the period (length of time needed for the object to make on complete revolution), the speed is equal to the distance traveled in that one revolution Newton’s Second Law states that the net force exerted on a moving body is equal to the product of a body’s mass and its acceleration. For a body moving in a straight line, the acceleration consists of a rate of change in the magnitude of the velocity. For a body moving
