Introduction: This lab investigated the amount of tension in a cable if weights were placed at two different points along the cable. In the experiment, the force of the cable was determined by a tension gauge at one end of the cable. This experiment was being modeled with a piece of string which was attached at both ends to a hook and then along the string weights were attached to the string. The weights were a three, five, or ten pound weight. The tension in the string from point A to point B which contained a weight was calculated by the tension gauge. A prediction about this experiment is that it will not be very accurate, and the average percent of error will be around 25%.
Discussion: This experiment has two different tests and two runs for each test for accuracy. During this experiment a cable system was set up just like the picture shown on the lab sheet. The difference was that different weights were used at points B and D. After the weights were placed onto the cable system the distances were recorded for the distances asked. This was done twice so as to get an average to ensure accuracy.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
