Unformatted text preview: the forces, the masses and perpendicular distances, we determined the unknown mass to be 0.620 kg. Our calculations resulted in a 1.64% error which verifies the concept of torque equilibrium. Some of the errors made in the experiment include the d y θ 2 θ 1 m B d m m A m C F T Tension Equilibrium m B m r d d d 1 d 2 Meter Stick Equilibrium ruler that found the mass of was not the same as the ruler in the actual lab. Some of the weights were pre-measured, so they might not have been as accurate as if we had actually measured it. Finding the weight of the ruler, as we had to use our judgment to see if the ruler was balanced and that we assumed the tension of the string was straight....
