When a object with a mass moves in a certain direction (east or west), we primarily think of
there being velocity and acceleration associated with the object. As we go in depth, we know th

Question 1: How close did the nal values come to the values determined from the vector addition
The values we got came very close to the vector addition diagram. The resultant vec

Hydrostatic pressure can be defined by P = Po + pgh. P is the hydrostatic pressure, Po is the
pressure of the liquid at surface level, p is the density, g is the gravity, an

In this lab, we experimented with a glider, which moves across a track with tiny holes on each
side. These tiny holes breathe air, which creates a frictionless surface enabling the glider to move
Applying physical principles and terms has never been much more fun than using Atwoods
machine, a specific machine with a wire passing a pulley system with masses added to each end of the
Simple Harmonic Oscillator
Motion detectors have been a vital instrument in the world of Physics. Motion detectors use
sound waves to locate the distance of an object at various times. This inform
Linear momentum is a unique concept that is tested with a sphere made of steel which slides
down a a track and plunges into a hole within a block and stays in that hole. The block is initially
