Bucket Ring Spring Scale w w m Direct Relationship m slope weight mass gravity mass weight Sean Daehn Gravitational Field Lab Report Purpose:  To develop a mathematical model and conceptual model with the  weight of a particle on the surface of the earth and to find the relationship  between weight and mass. Apparatus:      Procedure:  First, we put some of the rings into the bucket. Then, we  weighed the bucket with our spring scale which measured the mass and  the weight. When we did that process 10 times, we used our data to create  a graph and to form a model and find out the slope.

The model is used to find the weight of an object on earths surface in Newtons. The slope is a display of how many Newtons there are in a kilogram on the surface of the earth and there are 10 Newtons per kilogram....
