Experiment 9: Torque, Equilibrium & Center of Gravity10/21/2020Student Name:Sarah A, Nicole A, Sarah H, RabahREPORTSection Number:30806Instructions1)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
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.
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.
