Discussion
With the observation of standing waves in a vibrating, horizontal string, the theory of the experiment
was that where is the frequency in Hertz, is the wavelength in meters, T is the tension in the string in
Newtons, and is the mass per unit le

Discussion
When creating a replicable constant velocity for the ball, its important to keep these
variables constant: the length of the ramp, the length of the lab bench on which the ball runs, the
height of the lab bench, the release position of the ball

Discussion
The results were indeed consistent with the theory in that the Fspring/mass for both radii that
were derived using the F weights/mass calculated with the weights used to counterbalance the force
the spring was exerting on the hanging mass were

Discussion
The theory behind this experiment was the Law of Conservation of Momentum, stating that
the momentum of the projectile before collision should equal the momentum of the projectile and
pendulum combined immediately after the collision which was

Discussion
For Part A, the theory was that if the calculated , the change in internal energy of the system
occurring during the collision, was equal to 0, as expected in an elastic collision, then the kinetic energy of
the system was conserved. For all th

Discussion
Results were consistent with the theory in that the percent error derived from the comparison
of the calculated experimental Y (1.62 x 1011) and the expected Y (20 x 1010) was only 18.8%. Since
its assumed that the expected Y was calculated wit

Discussion
The theory of this experiment was that a system undergoes simple harmonic motion when its
displacement from equilibrium as a function of time is given by the equation . Plugging in the data from the
experiment with the big spring at both m = 0.

Discussion
The magnitudes of the graphically calculated F3 were slightly off in comparison to those
of the experimentally calculated F3. Granted, this deviation was, at most 0.003 N, however, the
calculated |F3| was closer to the experimental |F3| in all

Discussion
In order for the cart to move on the friction table, the tensional force to move it
would have to overcome the frictional force holding it in place. Experimentally, all of the
calculated average coefficients of F f/c were greater than all of th
