Report for Experiment M3: Equilibrium of Forces Liz Hauke Partner: Mike Falconio TA: Adam Stabile In this experiment, we measured the equilibrium of forces by attaching various weights to hangers at different angles. VI. 1) After testing whether our apparatus was in equilibrium, we found that the ring was centered around the peg when the hangers (mass 50 g) were placed at 120 degree angles. We were able to add 4 grams, and move the hangers in a direction of 4 degrees before we were able to detect a displacement. VI. 2) To determine the forces acting on the ring in this experiment, we can multiply the mass hanging from the string by the force of gravity: Trial m1(g) F1(N) m2(g) F2(N) m3(g) F3(N) 1 150 1.470 125 1.225 150 1.470 2 90 0.882 150 1.470 72 0.706 3 250 2.450 70 0.686 245 2.401 Using four forces: Trial m1(g) F1(N) m2(g) F2(N) m3(g) F3(N) m4(g) F4(N) 1 50 0.490 105 1.029 150 1.470 275 2.695 2 75 0.735 120 1.176 150 1.470 50 0.490 3 350 3.430 70 0.686 100 0.980 390 3.822 VI. 3) See graph paper
