Robert Crescenzi Lab #105 10/22/10 1.Title: Coefficient of Static Fritction 2.Background: 1) 0<Fs<Fsmax 2) Fsmax=(coefficient of static friction)*(normal force) 3.Procedures: 1. First we chose a value for Wa and then measured the value for Wb that will just cause Wa to be n the verge of slipping. 2. Then we did the experiment with 6 different values of Wa and recorded the value experimentally for Wb. 3. Then we did a block on an Inclined plane

We measured the force parallel to an inclined plane that will just cause a block to be on the verge of sliding up and down the plane, and compared those measured values with values calculated from Newton’s First Law. 5. Then we determined the value for Wa and experimented the value for Wb that will make the block be just on the verge of sliding up the plane. 6. Then we found the percentages of error. 7. We then repeated the step 5 but this time the value of Wb that will make the block be on the verge of sliding down the plane. 8.
