Purpose The purpose of this lab was to measure forces being applied to objects in several situations using two force sensors, a ring stand, and a force table. Also, we measured the time-varying forces of two objects when they came into contact with one another. Theory Time-varying forces allow us to compute the impulse produced by a force given by the equation: I = mv f - mv i Where m is the mass of the object measured in kilograms, v f is the final velocity measured in meters per second, and v i is the initial velocity measured in meters per second. With this data we can then verify Newton’s Third Law that if two objects interact, the force exerted by one object on the other is equal in magnitude but opposite in direction to the force exerted by the other. Procedure We began the experiment by turning on the computers and loading the LabPro software.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
