VectorsApparatusPASCP wireless smart car, pulley, string, mass hanger set, 1.2 dynamics track, large rod basedstand, protractor.IntroductionTo do this activity you must first know the difference between vectors and scalars andunderstand how they work. You must understand both geometric vectors and algebraic vectors.In this activity, however, algebraic vectors will be used. You must have the mass of the car andhangar prior to beginning this activity. This base equation- (Mcar + extra weight)gsin=(Mhangar+ extra weight)g- will be used to calculate the mass neededResultsPart 1)(253 + x)sin10 = 107=> 253sin10 + xsin10 = 107=> x = 363Part 2) 563sin15= 7 + x => x = (563sin15)/7x= 138Error AnalysisPart 1)I (310 – 363)/363 I = 14.6% differencePart 2)I (140-136)/136 I = 1.5% difference • • •
