ABSTRACT
This free fall experiment was ran using a sensor that recorded the golf balls bounce up and
down. When the ball is just dropped the force of gravity on it is 9.8m/s. After bouncing the ball

Abstract
In this experiment we observed simple harmonic motion (SHM) which is a form of oscillation.
SHM is determined by three

In the first part of the lab, we tested a force board with three spring scales attached together at a
point. These springs were exerting three different forces, and we had to determine whether the
force components added vectorially to zero. By a

Abstract:
In this lab, we experimented with geometric optics. We first tested Snells Law to find an index
of refraction based on the angle of incidence and the angle of refraction. We also found the focal
