Morales Equilibrium Lab Purpose: In three different scenarios, observe how equilibrium can be attained. Hypothesis: No matter the displacement or the amount of weights, equilibrium can be achieved. Materials: Ruler Clamps Weights String Force Meter, GLX Procedure : First, set up the equipment. Then, for the first scenario, weigh the ruler and clamps. Then place the clamps on the ruler and place any given number of weights on them. The difficult part is achieving equilibrium (i.e. the ruler must be suspended off the ground). Then repeat for another 5 trials in different displacement points or weight values. Next, for the second scenario, tie a string on the suspended bar and place a force meter in each one. Plug in the force meter into the GLX. Next, tie the string onto the ruler on each end. Afterwards, like in the previous scenario, place 3 different weights and displacement positions for the next 6 trials. Lastly, the

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
