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 earth’s 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....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
