Introduction: The objective of this lab was to find that the vector sum of forces equals zero. In order to see whether this theory is accurate we must experiment. Through this experiment we want to gain the ability to understand vectors. We did this experiment in order to prove that Newton’s Laws of motion was accurate. Through this law if the particle is experiencing zero net force then the particle is either at rest or moving at a constant speed. Through the algebraic sums of the x and y components of all the forces must equal zero for any given value on the x and y-axes. Procedure: 1. It is important to have a force table, 3 pulleys, three 50g weight hangers, a central ring with three attached knotted strings, and three standard sets of weights. 2.
