Akshay Patel Period 10 Honors Physics Lab- Second Condition of Equilibrium Objective: How can the second condition of equilibrium be applied to determine the mass of a meter stick? Conclusion: The second condition of equilibrium can be applied to use to find the mass of a meter stick. The second condition of equilibrium states that the sum of all torques must be zero, so there is no angular acceleration. During this lab, we knew that there was no angular acceleration when we thought the meter stick was balanced. The sum of the

Unformatted text preview: torques of this lab is zero and the axis was at 35 cm. There was a negative torque from the 0.1365kg mass that was 0.15 away from the axis and also from the meter stick, which was 0.35 meters away from the axis and the torque came from the ruler since it is the center of gravity of the meter stick. There was a positive torque from the .0665-kilogram mass, which was 0.70 meters away from the axis. We solved for the mass, which is shown, in my calculations....
