Forces and Equilibrium
Statement of the Problem
In this lab we studied forces and their relation to objects in motion. In the first part, we
investigated the forces of gravity and tension and their effect on the velocity of a moving object.
We used a cart
Problem 1
Statement of Problem
In this problem we had one cart with a spring bumper. We pushed the cart on level track
into a wall to produce a collision. The goal of the experiment was to find out how efficient the
spring bumper was at 3 different veloci
