Post Lab 6 1. We plotted sin (θ) in order to make the graph linear. Also, sin (θ) conveys the actual physics of the experiment more than simply θ. 2. If we used a heavier bar, the y-intercept would increase, so the whole graph would shift upward. Since the distance from the pivot and the masses wouldn’t change, the slope wouldn’t change either. 3. His 2X4 would have to be 23680038.05 light years long. 4. (a) Changing from a large back gear to a small back gear makes it harder to pedal because the bicyclist has to exert more force on the pedal to maintain the same torque at the
