these configurations. This won’t be a particularly long lab report, but it should include all of “the usual suspects” – title, purpose, hypothesis (for the angle increase), procedure (with sketch!), data & calculations, analysis (a description of how you found the mass), and conclusion.

A Slanted View Calculate the force necessary to hold a car on a “hill” (inclined plane). Try at least five different angles. Verify your calculations using the spring scale. How does the spring scale reading compare with the parallel component of the weight? How should it compare? Why? Also, calculate the force that the “road” exerts on the car. Then, calculate the acceleration that your car will have as it rolls down the hill. (Instead of creating a usual free-body diagram showing the forces on the car, can you think of a different kind of vector diagram that might simplify your calculations?) Verify your calculations for at least five different angles. How does your data compare with your calculations? What kind of relationship do you find for acceleration vs. angle? Can you obtain an experimental value of g from your data? How? Summarize your thought processes, your procedure, measurements, calculations, and conclusions in the usual lab write-up format.

    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.
