Experiment 6: Torque, Equilibrium & Center of Gravity10/6/2020Student Name:REPORTSection Number:Instructions1)Follow all of the lab activity steps given in the Lab Procedure.2)Don't forget to fill out both the Report and Data Tables tabs.3) 4) Show your method of calculation for each type of calculation.Using the source of error in your answer above, describe in a QUANTITATIVE way how large a measurement error is needed to account for a difference of 1% between the measured CW and CCW torques in PART A, B, or C. Describe IN DETAIL how you obtain this estimate. Results 1) In PART A the weight of the meter stick is not included in the calculation of CW and CCW torque. Why?Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph. 2) What is the percentage difference between your CW and CCW torque magnitudes in PART A, B, & C? What is the most likely source of measurement error in this experiment?Write out your answer in a clear and well supported paragraph. 3) Using the source of error in your answer above, describe in a QUANTITATIVE way how large a measurement error is needed to account for a difference of 1% between the measured CW and CCW torques in PART A, B, or C. Describe IN DETAIL how you obtain this estimate.
