John Salek-Raham D. Sarkar PHY 151 Lab M3 9/18/07 In step one of the procedure, the apparatus was tested for its accuracy and sensitivity by placing 3 of the 50 gram hooks at angles of 120 degrees to each other. The apparatus reached equilibrium. The minimum amount of weight that could be added to the apparatus was 2 grams. V2 and V3 : 3 Components #1 Mass kg Newtons (kgm/s^2) Angle (degrees) Vector .110 1.0791 120 0.3949 .150 1.4715 220 -2.0731 N .180 1.7658 0 1.7658 N #2 Mass (kg) Newtons (kgm/s^2) Angle (degrees) Vector .210 2.0601 120 1.1943 .180 1.7658 270 -2.6677 .100 .9810 0 0.9810 #3 Mass (kg) Newtons (kgm/s^2) Angle (degrees) Vector .210 2.0601 120 1.7658 .180 1.7658 280 -1.4324 .065 0.6377 0 0.6376 Weights were hung off of the apparatus in varying directions and added or subtracted as needed until the apparatus reached equilibrium. These weights are recorded in kg and converted to Newton’s. Using the angle, the magnitude was found of the vector and is plotted in the direction indicated by the angle on the coordinate plane. V4:
