LAB 131 Mehar Ghei LABORATORY EXPERIMENT REPORT Name: Mehar Ghei Group Members: Nicole Tran, Yvunne Chen, Nakib Junayed Experiment Date: Tuesday, October 19 th , 2010 Course Name: PHYS 111A Section: H01 Instructor: Beidi He LABORATORY #131 Centripetal Forces 1. OBJECTIVE Through experimentation, understand the motion of a pendulum and calculate the tension in the string of the oscillating mass and compare it to the maximum force measured by Logger Pro software. 2. THEORETICAL BACKGROUND = U mgh = K 12mv2 = W Fd = DW DU = ( + ) F m g v2r Pendulum movement is an example of rotational motion. The equations that describe the motion are: X) = Tsinθ max Y) + = mg Tcosθ may When θ is zero: X) = 0 ma Y) + = mg T may 3.
