PHY-151 M3 Manual Addendum VI: For the Report VI-1: Summarize your results from section V-1 of the procedure. What is the minimum mass and angle displacement from equilibrium that you can detect with this apparatus? These values should be considered to be the uncertainty associated with your measurements. VI-2: Tabulate your results for the 3 sets of 3-force measurements and for the 3 sets of 4-force measurements. Each table should list the mass, angle and force (in Newtons) for each force. VI-3: Choose one set of your 3- force cases. Using the graphical method discussed in the lab manual and in the TA presentation, add the forces together geometrically and determine the resultant. In order to do this properly, you will need to decide on an appropriate scale to correlate the length of a vector in your diagram to the magnitude of the force. For example, if my scale is 1 cm = .05 N, then a 15.6 cm length vector represents a force of magnitude 0.78 N. You must choose a scale such that your drawing takes up as much of an 8½ x 11 inch sheet of
