Unformatted text preview: Rachel Riddle PHY 101 Lab #1 Procedure 1: Mass and Weight o Equipment Triple Balance Beam-to measure the mass and weight Scissors, calculator and keys- used as non standard objects to measure o See cover sheet for data o The results of this experiment are that it gives us a chance to sharpen our rusty measuring and converting skills. Procedure 2A: Diameter vs. Circumference o Equipment Graph paper- to trace cylindrical masses String to measure the circumference Ruler to measure the circumference and diameter o See data table for data and graph o The results of the experiment are that there is a relationship between diameter and circumference. The relationship is that as the diameter gets larger so does the circumference. The datum does fall along a straight line as shown with the best fit line. The proportionality constant is synonymous with the slope which I calculated to be 9 cm. See the data sheet for constant is synonymous with the slope which I calculated to be 9 cm....
