Physics 1050 Experiment 4 Contents These questions need to be completed before entering the lab. Please show all workings. Prelab 1: A 500 kg car is at rest at the top of a 50.0 m high hill. Calculate the energy of the car at the top of the hill. Prelab 2: The car rolls to the bottom of the hill. At the bottom of the hill, the car has a speed of 27.8 m/s. Calculate the energy of the car at the bottom of the hill. (Assume the bottom of the hill has a height of 0 m.) Prelab 3: Calculate the work done by friction on the car as it rolled down the hill.

Physics 1050 Experiment 4 Part I: Introduction In this lab, you will slide a pointed mass through a track. It will leave the track with an initial velocity and land on a piece of paper. Using conservation of energy you will predict the velocity with which it emerges from the track. Using measurements of the horizontal distance travelled and the kinematic equations , you will determine the actual speed with which it emerged. You will use energy to determine the work done by friction on the projectile.
