Lab #4- Newton's 2nd Law Objective: By doing several different experiments, it is possible to observe Newton's 2 nd Law of motion throughout the lab. Description: This lab has three different parts to it: Part 3) By using a force sensor and a motion
Lab #5 Lab Performed: October 9th, 2007 Lab Due: October 16th, 2007 Section 13 Objective: The objective of this lab is to investigate the validity of the work-energy relationship where W= KE. Theory: With a point mass m acted upon by a net force F=F(
Lab 8 Objective: The objective of this lab is to investigate one dimension 2 body collisions in regards to conservation of energy and the momentum. Description: Two gliders lie on the horizontal air track. One is set at rest between the two motion se
Lab 2 Objective: By using an air track, glider and a motion sensor, this experiment can record data for graphical representations of an object's position, velocity and acceleration. Description: Using a motion sensor, we are able to record the moveme
Lab 11 Oscillations of a string
Objective: To observe free and forced oscillations of a string. Free oscillations will be observed on a string fixed at both ends by using a weak driving force which varies with time sinusoidally. The waves which com
Lab 6 Objective: In this experiment, Newton's 2nd law of motion is tested in rotational motion with a centripetal force. Description: The set up will allow for a hanging mass to rotate around in a circular motion. The hanging mass M1 will be hung by
Lab 7 Lab Performed: October 23rd, 2007 Lab Due: October 30th, 2007 Section 13 Objective: To demonstrate the different relations of KE & PE in different situations since the total energy E is equal to KE+PE and they must accommodate each other so tha
Objective: The objective of this experiment is to measure a projectile using three different methods and figure out which method is best. Description: This lab has two different methods that has a steel ball shooting out of a spring gun horizontally.
Lab Section 13 Lab Date: September 11th, 2007 Lab Due: September 18th, 2007 Lab 1 Part 1 2.1 What is the speed of sound? 344.83 m/s Can you think of why it might vary from day to day? Temperature plays a role in the speed of sound. Cold weather will
Lab Performed: December 4th, 2007 Lab Due: December 11th, 2007 Lab 12 Section 13 Objective: The objective of this lab is to investigate standing sound waves in a sound tube. The sound waves will be recorded by a microphone in a resonance tube along w
Lab 10 Rotational Motion Objective: The objective of this lab is to investigate the relationship between torque, the moment of inertia and angular acceleration. Theory: Part 1) Again using Newton's 2nd Law, F=ma, we can deduce F(perpendicular) to be
Objective: The objective of this lab to investigate Newton's First Law and it's validity in the world. Description: By using a force table, we are able to see the distribution of forces in different directions and magnitudes through the use of pulley
