Physics 123 - Minilab 6 NEWTON'S LAWS - II Purpose Determine whether Newton's third law is satisfied when two force probes interact. Introduction Newton's third law says that when two bodies interact, the forces between them are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. This is true for all bodies, regardless of their size, shape, or orientation in space. Procedure This week you have two force probes, which will push or pull each other. To get accurate readings, they must each be “zeroed” when you start and each time you change their orientation. (With the probes in the proper orientation with nothing attached, go to the “experiment” icon, and choose “zero”. Collect some data this way, to see how accurate the zeroing process is.) Draw careful diagrams, accurately labeled. 1. Decide which probe ( L eft/ R ight) corresponds to which color on the screen. For each, decide which direction (Push/Pull) corresponds to a positive reading. Complete item 1 on the next page.
