Objective: To experimentally verify the rules of vector addition by comparison with the methods of vector graphs and rectilinear components. Apparatus: Force table, pulleys, slotted weights, cup, lead shot, bubble level, balance, and protractor (for graphical analysis section). Theory: There are two types of measurable quantities, scalars and vectors. A scalar is has only magnitude, so it can be added just like any other numbers. Mass is a scalar quantity. Vectors, on the other hand, have a direction as well. Common examples of vectors are velocity and force. Procedure and Data: 1. Each group will use the following 3 forces; A = 550 g-wt, B = 350 g-wt, C = 250g-wt 2. Group 7 will use A @ 350 degrees, B @ 180 Degrees, and C @ 110 degrees 3. Attach each mass at these angles to the string which is connected to the center ring. 4. Manually move the string until the ring no longer touches the peg
