Alexander Hyatt Physics Lab 124-021 April 3, 2007 Abstract This lab experiment was used to introduce the idea of torque. The concept was used to determine the values of several unknown masses. In the experiment, the meter stick was in static equilibrium, and therefore, the meter stick was also in transnational equilibrium and rotational equilibrium. This means that the meter stick could be balanced on a fulcrum. In this lab, the sum of the torques equal zero, if the meter stick is balanced after two different masses have been placed on the meter stick at different ends. The unknown masses could be found by using several knowns, and the equations in the lab manual. Experiment Pre-lab Info Pre-Lab Info Location of meter stick's center of mass = 49.8cm Mass clip hangers mh1 = 16.8g mh2 = 18.4g mh3 = 15.9g The pre-lab info is the information that will be used throughout the lab experiment. The meter stick’s center of mass is used to find the different r values, and the mh1, mh2 and mh3 values are used to find the different mass values (m1, m2, m3).
