I. Hypothesis At 500g the inertia balance will cease to wave if a small amount of force is applied. II. Materials -Inertia balance -Clamp -Weights of varying known masses -One weight of unknown mass -Stop watch -Ruler -Piece of paper III. Procedure 1) Gather all materials 2) Make hypothesis as to how much weight will stop the balance from moving. 3) Attach inertia balance to edge of a level table. The side with a hole should be suspended over the ground and the other side should be flush with the edge of the table. 4) Taper ruler to table roughly one inch to side of inertia balance. Ensure they are parallel. 5) Pull suspended end of balance toward ruler until touching it.

Unformatted text preview: Release. 6) Hold piece of paper up to waving (suspended) end of balance in order to hear how many time the end waves. Keep track of number of waves in 5 seconds. Do two trials. 7) Put an additional 50g onto suspended end of balance. Repeat step 6. 8) Repeat step 7 up to 1kg. Do not exceed 1kg on balance. 9) Now take unknown weight and test. Estimate mass of weight. 10) Find out from instructor actual weight of unknown and calculate error. IV.
