Physics 2524, Discussion 1 Solutions 8/23/2011 NOTE: Your results might be a little different, but the basic physics should have come out the same. Your group should get 6 pieces of tape from your TA, each about 10 – 15 cm long. Make a small “handle” on each of the pieces of tape by folding one end of the tape, about 1 cm, sticking it to itself. Hang each of the pieces of tape by sticking them to the edge of a desk. Use the handle to when you hold the tape and try not to touch the rest of the tape. A) Take one piece of tape and label it “A”. Press it down onto the surface of a book, making sure it is flat and smooth. Using the handle, pull the tape up quickly and hang it back up on the desk. You might need to practice because pulling too quickly can make the tape curl and stick to itself. What happens to the tape when other objects are brought close? Use different types of objects (metal, plastic, a finger, etc.) What happens to the tape? Which object(s) has the largest effect on the tape? Create a table showing your observations.
