Lab 2 Conclusion
The graphical method of vector addition is the visual representation of the relative
magnitude and direction of the vector written on an X and Y coordinate plane. The vectors are
drawn to scale in the coordinate plane pointing in the corr
Discussion and Conclusion
Torque is how well the force can cause rotation. It is dependent on the force applied, the
distance where the force is applied form the pivot point, and the direction the force is applied.

Part 1
The car in the activity 1 moved at a constant velocity. Every 1/10 of a second, the car traveled
approximately the same distance each time. The average distance moved was 0.031 meters. The
graph that was formed from this experiment was seen to be l
Discussion and Conclusion
In this lab, we learned that mechanical energy is the sum of Kinetic Energy and potential
energy. Based on the results of activity one, we learned that the mass of the skater had no
effect on the speed if there was no friction. B
Discussion and Conclusion
The acceleration of an object traveling at a constant speed in a circular path is called
centripetal acceleration. The speed stays the same, but the direction constantly changes. The
acceleration is pointed towards the center at
