Purpose
The purpose of this lab was to measure the velocity and acceleration of moving
objects.
We observed the motion of these objects in which the acceleration was constant
and timevarying.
We were also determining the slopes of the graphs as they appeared
after running our experiments.
Theory
The Angular Frequency of the Oscillation is measured by an equation of:
W = 2∏/T
Where T is the period.
Procedure
We began the experiment by weighing the coins on an electronic scale.
We
recorded the masses and then measured the diameter with the vernier caliper.
We also
measured the thickness of the coins with the micrometer.
Once we collected our
measurements, we calculated the volume and density of the coins as well as their mean
and standard deviation.
With these numbers, we also calculated the alternate mean
density and standard deviation for this as well.
This is the end of the preview.
