Experimental Objectives: Co-Author: Mike Coover For Lab #4: Work, Power, and Efficiency, our experimental objectives were as follows: 1) To select a device which operation includes at least two of the four physical systems and provides information relating to displacements, rates, forces quantities, resistance, work or power. 2) Record all available data specified relating to the above forms. 3) Estimate values for unknown forms. First, we decided what device we were to choose that could provide us with the objectives we needed. A circulator pump (Model 005) fit into that description quite well. This device operated using three of the four physical systems; Mechanical, Fluidal, and Electrical. Also, the circulator pump was presented with information relating to
