Unformatted text preview: 1. Introduction: Moment is an important concept in mechanics. Momentum is used to help analyze the impact of jet water as it strikes a flat plate. We can calculate the theoretical flow moment of the jet which will help in finding properties like height of water level, weight, experimental & theoretical moment and error in moment caused during the experiment. The main objective of the lab is to prove that by putting different weights and leveling it with respect to 0 and 30 degrees of angle, moment is a linear function. 2. The theoretical and experimental values of the moment in this lab were calculated using the following equations and were recorded in Table 1 in the data section below: Mass Measured Height Measured Submerge Moment Measured Moment Calculated Error in Moment g mm m Nm Nm 113.3980924 64 0.064 0.064 0.222487057 1.052385408-3.730097206 226.7961848 118 0.118 0.118 0.444974115 0.427106799 0.040153607 340.1942772 92 0.092 0.092 0.667461172 0.701415-0.050870117 453.5923696 72 0.072 0.072 0.889948229 0.92214-0.036172633 566.990462 51 0.051 0.051 1.1124352861....
