3-LIST OF EQUIPMENTS:
4-THEORY AND EQUATIONS:-A vector is a physical quantity that has both magnitude and direction. Examples include force, weight, displacement, velocity and acceleration.-A vector A can be writtenas a sum of two vectorsAxandAy along the x and the y-axis respectively, as shown.Axand Ayare calledthe components of vector Ax= A cosαAy= A sinα (α is the angle vector Amakes with the positive x-axis.)-Step to find the resultant vector Rof a system of vectors A, B, Ca) Find the x and y components for each vector. i.e find A:,… :
y ....
+ …
+ …
where θ is
5-PROCEDURES:1.Suppose there is a mass of 300g set at 400. Calculate the x and y components and set them up on the force table. Add to the table a force equal to the supposed force but in opposite direction to it. Check the system’s equilibrium.2.Set 100g at 300 and 200g at 1200. Calculate the resultant of these two forces analytically.
