Unformatted text preview: Analysis Results of the experiment shows that the percentage errors of the polygon methods of trials 1 and 2 are below 5% error, inferring that the vectors are well-drawn, that is the graphing of the vectors are accurately done, meaning, the measurement of the vectors is very close to the actual value of the vectors. Furthermore, the experiment confirmed that the percentage errors of the analytical or component methods of trials 1 and 2 are also below 5% error, showing the resultant are well-calculated, that is the calculations are also accurate, meaning, the calculations of the resultant vectors is very close to the actual value of the resultant. The test also shows that the direction of the resultant is the negative of the equilibrant computed from the force table, thus, it can be calculated by subtracting 180° from the equilibrant, that is finding the reference angle, if the angle measure is...
