Work and Energy Name: Poojan Patel Date: 11/01/10 Lab Partners: Mike Avgerinos, Niki Kakarla and Soraya Selamie Purpose: The purpose of the lab was to measure the force required to move a mass over a certain distance using different methods. We also had to compare the force required to move different masses over different time intervals. Materials: Clamps Cord, 1.00 m Force meter Inclined plane Masking tape Meter stick Set of hooked masses Stopwatch Data and Results: Pulling Masses Mass (kg) Starting Point Force (N) Total Distance traveled 1 0 2 0.5 1 0 2 1 1 0.5 2 0.5 0.2 0 0.2 0.5 0.2 0 0.2 1 0.2 0.5 0.2 0.5 Lifting Masses Mass (kg) Starting Point Force (N) Total Distance Traveled 1 0 9.8 0.5 1 0 9.8 0.25 0.2 0 2 0.5 0.2 0 2 0.25 Displacing masses using an inclined plane Mass (kg) Starting Point Force (N) Total Distance Traveled 1 0 10 0.5 1 0 10 0.25 0.2 0 2 0.5 0.2 0 2 0.25

Conclusion: Pulling Masses Analysis Questions 1) Q: Did you exert the same force on 1 kg mass as you did on the 0.2 kg mass to move them an equal distance? A: No I did not. When I moved the 1 kg mass a distance of 0.5 meters, I exerted a force of 2 N. When I moved the 0.2 kg mass a distance of 0.5 meters, I exerted a force of 0.2 N. 2) Q: Did it require more force to move the mass 1.00 m than to move the same mass 0.5 m? A:
