Physics I, 1401 Experiment 02 – Vector Addition
EXPERIMENT 01 - MEASUREMENTS4Procedure1Suspend a mass of 300 g over a pulley clamped at the 400angle. Calculate the horizontal and vertical components and set them up on the force table. Replace now the original force with an equal force with an opposite direction to it. Check the equilibrium of the system.2Suspend a mass of 100 g at 300 and a mass of 200 g at 1200. Find the resultant of these two forces by the method of components. Check your result by mounting a pulley directly oppo-site to the resultant and of same magnitude; the ring should be centered.3Keep the same masses above listed and suspend a third mass of 150 g at 2300.Do the same thing as in procedure 2.Calculation1)For procedure 1, show your calculation for the components of the vector.2)For procedure 2, find, graphically, the magnitude and the direction of the resultant vector.Use the laws of sine and cosine. Show your graph to scale on a separate sheet, if needed.
