Visual Physics218-lab - Technical Memo To: Tristian Leggett (Physics TA) From: Diego Hernando (Student) Date: Friday, April 25, 2008 Subject: Lab 5 exp 1: Angular and linear velocity This experiment was easily done. This experiment shows the relationship between angular velocity with linear velocity. We determined that at a constant angular velocity the greater the radius the greater the linear velocity. Experimental results and analysis Raius (cm) angular velocity (rad/s) linear velocity (m/s) centripetal acceleration (m/s 2 ) 5 7.04 0.352 0.099123 10

These radii are shown in the table below with their respective angular velocities, linear velocities, and centripetal acceleration. The angular velocities I got from the graph’s trend lines that are below: And I just used the formula: v=wr to get the linear velocity, and a=v^2/r to get the centripetal acceleration....
