LABORATORY 6: ROTATIONAL INERTIA
Introduction
The only motion of a rigid object mounted on a fixed axis that can be produced by an applied force is
rotation about that axis. The effect of the applied

Introduction
In this experiment we use a ballistic pendulum to study an inelastic collision. The device is a
simplified version of equipment formerly used to measure t
LABORATORY 1: FLUIDS
Introduction
A fluid is a substance that has no rigidity. Fluids do not have fixed shapes; they are not able to
permanently resist shear forces that act to alter their shapes. Flu
LABORATORY 3: ACCELERATION OF A SYSTEM OF TWO OBJECTS
Introduction
We measure the motion of a cart rolling on a horizontal track connected by a string to a falling mass.
The equipment needed is shown
LABORATORY 4: WORK AND ENERGY
Introduction
Work is a measure of energy transfer. When positive work is done on an object, there is an increase in
its kinetic or potential energy. In order to do work o

In order to represent physical quantities such as position and
momentum in more than one dimension, we must introduce new
mathematical objects called vectors. Technically speaking, a vector is

In the strictly mathematical definition of a vector, the only
operations that vectors are required to possess are those of
addition and scalar multiplication. (Compare this with the
operations allowe
Graphical Addition
Consider the vectors u = (3, 4) and v = (4, 1) in the plane. From
the component method of vector addition we know that the sum of these
two vectors is u + v = (7, 5) . Graphically,
POTENTIAL PROBLEMS
Problem : Consider two vectors u and v in the plane which comprise
two sides of a triangle. What vector corresponds to the third side?
Either u - v or v - u are acceptable answers.
