Unformatted text preview: know this because our values for TE as a function of time, were close to 0. However we do not need to alert CNN that a major law of physics has just been violated at AU because we didnt study an isolated system. 4. Yes, our TE +K rot results help our Energy Conservation situation, but do not resolve it entirely because many of the values are not near 0. 5. For our experiment, all of our little g values were very actual to the actual gravitational force value. Since our difference in energies was very small, we got an accurate reading when conducting this test. Some things that could have been changed were the length of the string, a consistent release of the heavier mass, and air resistance. 6. The fact that PE is not 0 could be a systematic error infesting in our Atwood system with respect to total mechanical energy TE because it is affected by PE or TE. 7. See Excel Spreadsheet...
