View Full Document 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 yaxes.
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.
