(Q2) rev/s^2 squared Time would not be measured in seconds squared, for example in measuring how
fast a merry go round is moving we would not divide by a time and squaring it.
(Q5) The farther the rider is from the center
Circular Motion (Pendulum)

June 1st, 2007
Purpose: The focus of this experiment was to show that linear motion variables could be broken down into motion variables. Procedure: The first step to beginning the lab was to capture the vid
115A Measurment, Curve Fitting, and Graphing
4/06/07
Abstract: The measurement, curve fitting, and graphing lab allowed us to make simple measurements using a pan balance (g) and a caliper (mm). We took measurements of six stainless steel ball bear
The Atwood Machine (Newton's Second Law)
May 4th, 2007
Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to gain a better understanding of the relationship between forces on an object and the acceleration of the object. We will be using a simple mass less pulley
Collisions

May 4th, 2007
Purpose: On an almost perfect frictionless air table the collision to two pucks should adhere to the conservation of momentum. Procedure: In the collisions lab we collided two pucks of different (although clos
Conservation of Energy (Pendulum)
By: Partners:
May 25th, 2007
Purpose: The focus of this experiment was to show that the kinetic energy, potential energy and total mechanical energy of a pendulum changes as functions of time. Procedure: The first
115C Uniformly Accelerated Rectilinear Motion (Free Fall)
4/19/07
Abstract: The purpose of the uniformly accelerated rectilinear motion lab is to describe position, velocity, and acceleration for an object in free fall, and determine a value for g.
Uniformly Accelerated Motion in Two Dimensions (Projectile Motion)
By: Partners:
May 4th, 2007
Purpose: The focus of this experiment was to show that the acceleration, velocity, and position of an object in projectile motion could be broken down in
Newton's Second Law Forces and Acceleration
April 27th, 2007
By: Partners:
Purpose: The focus of this experiment was to verify Newton's second law F=ma (mass * acceleration). The purpose of the lab is to prove that the relationship between the res
Static Equilibrium and Vector Addition
By: Partners:
April 20th, 2007
Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to provide a tangible, hands-on experience with methods of vector addition. Procedure: In part one; the direction and magnitude of the forces
