Experiment 9: Centripetal Force 9/24/2020 Student Name: REPORT Section Number: Instructions 1) Follow all of the lab activity steps given in the Lab Procedure. 2) 3) 4) Attach additional sheets of paper that clearly (NEATLY) show all of your calculations performed during this experiment. Results 1) Theoretically, how does the radial force exerted on an object vary with the radius of its circular pathwhen it is revolving: (a) at constant frequency? (b) with constant speed? Is this theory supported by your experimental results? Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph. 2) When the value of the revolving mass and the radius of its path are both held constant, what theoretical effect on the period does increasing the radial force have? Did you observe thisexperimentally? Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph.
