Objective: The purpose of this lab experiment was to confirm the legitimacy of Newtons Laws of Motion. Description: A circular table which has moveable pulleys around a circumference table was set up. The markings around the table identify the angle at wh
Measurement of e/m Lab 5
Purpose
The purpose of this experiment was to experimentally verify the value of e/m.
Description
An evacuated glass tube in which electrons execute their orbits and a pair of coils to provide a uniform magnetic field within the t
Motion I 2.1 What is the speed of sound? 334.90 m/s Can you think of why speed of sound may vary day to day? Atmospheric pressure, weather, and moisture in the air certainly have an effect on sound waves. Although the speed of sound is constant, the abili
Centripetal Force Lab 9
Objective:
In this experiment our goal is to compare the experimental and theoretical values of the centripetal force of a mass rotated in a circle. By comparing the values we are in effect verifying Newtons 2nd Law

Equilibrium of a Particle
Purpose The purpose of this lab was to investigate Newtons First Law, which states that if all forces on the point mass add up to zero, then as measured in an inertial coordinate system, the velocity mass is a constant. This is r
Conservation of Energy
Introduction/Theory The purpose of this experiment is to examine the theory of conservation of energy, which states that the total energy of a system is equal to the sum of the kinetic and potential energies at any given time. Kinet

Collisions in One Dimension
Purpose: The main purpose of this lab was to investigate the conservation and momentum in one dimensional, two-body collisions. THEORY The momentum of a particle is defined as p=mv. According to Netwons 2nd law, the force F is
Crystal Binding
Crystals are held together by
interactions that are linked to:
the attractive electrostatic
interaction between the negative
charge of the electrons and the
positive charge of the nuclei
the tendency to form closed
atomic shells (such as t
Ionic Binding
Ionic crystals are held together by
interactions that are linked to:
the attractive electrostatic
interactions between oppositely
charged ions and the repulsive
interactions between ions of equal
charge.
ions form closed atomic shells
(such
Objective: The purpose of the lab was to verify Newtons 2nd law and some applications of the law by performing various experiments Description: During the process of verifying the correlation between Force and the product of mass and acceleration we used
