Information/Background: The rim of the table is ruled in degrees and have clamps with pulleys connected that can be moved to different degrees around the table. By adding different masses to the pulleys around the table, their weight is applied to the cords passing over the pulleys. To find the equilibrium on the table, the pulleys are repositioned at different angles. The ring in the center shows whether the table is in equilibrium. Procedure: The first step of this experiment is to test the force table by setting two vectors with different weights attached. When the weights are added and the pin is pulled from the top of the table, the ring will not stay centered on the table without holding it in place. To balance the table, weight is added to the lesser pulley to equal the second. With this, the table should be in equilibrium. In order to test the error analysis, three vectors are aligned on the table 120 degrees apart with an equal amount of weight. In order to find the uncertainty, chose one pulley and move it away from its current position on the table. There
