Name: Enas Shehadeh Group Members: Amany Awad, Kaitlin Rau Experiment Date: Tuesday, October 5, 2010 Course Name: PHYS 111A Section: H01 Instructor: Beidi, He 1. Objectives -To confirm the condition for static equilibrium is that the vector sum of forces is zero. -To experimentally test the vector nature of force -To practice manipulating the vectors -To attain better understanding of vectors -To find unknown tensions and directions in a system of strings connected to a central ring. 2. THEORETICAL BACKGROUND According to Newton’s Law of motion, a particle that experience zero net force will either remain at rest or moving with a constant speed in a straight line depending on its initial condition. There are two methods for the addition of vector forces. 1. Graphical method: the length of a vector arrow is proportional to the magnitude of the vector and the arrow points in the direction of the vector. . 2.
