Experiment: Momentum Conservation
Date of Experiment: 03/11/15
Objective:
The objective of this experiment is to test the law of conservation of momentum when there is no
net external force. From this experiment, we also hope to gain a better understandin

Experiment: Torque
Performed On: 03/30/2015
Objective:
The goal of this experiment is to test the relationship between net torque and mechanical
equilibrium of an object. From this experiment, we also hope to gain a better understanding and
experience of

Experiment: Experiment #2, Adding Vectors in Force Table
Performed on: 02/18/15
Objective:
The objective of this experiment is to gain an understanding of how vectors work. We will do so
by calculating the resultants of force vectors using a force table.

Experiment: Newtons Second Law
Date of Experiment: 02/23/2015
Objective:
The objective of this experiment is to test and verify Newtons Second law, which states that the
net force acting on an object is directly proportional to its acceleration. From this

Experiment: Specific Heat of Metals
Performed On: 04/15/2015
Objective:
The goal of this experiment is to use conservation of energy, specifically heat flow, to measure
the specific heat of a metal.
Theory:
Temperature is the measure of the average kineti

Experiment: Experiment #1, Gravitational Acceleration G
Performed on: 02/09/15
Objective:
The objective of this experiment was to measure the effect of g, the gravitational acceleration
near the surface of the Earth, on an objects acceleration due to grav

Experiment: Simple Pendulum
