Lab Assignment 8: Center of Mass
Instructors Overview
Have you ever recovered when you began to slip on ice? Your body goes into a
type of autopilot state to maintain balance. Most people can't remember
precisely all of the movements that were executed. T
Lab Assignment 3: Newtons Laws
Instructors Overview
Newtons laws of motion are a central component of our understanding of
physics. As we discussed in Module 5, Newtons laws can be summarized as
follows:
1. Inertia An object tends to resist changes in its
Lab Assignment 4: Frictional Forces
Instructors Overview
In many physics problems involving Newtons laws of motion, youll see
statements like, assume a frictionless surface or neglecting air resistance
In this lab we will be exploring both friction and ai

Lab Assignment 2: Projectile Motion
Instructors Overview
Projectile motion is a part of our everyday experience. When you strike a
baseball or softball, you are creating a projectile motion scenario. Similarly, you
yourself are a projectile when you jump
Lab Assignment 7: Circular Motion
Instructors Overview
Circular motion is an integral part of our everyday lives. We experience circular
motion when we leave highways on cloverleaf exits and on amusement park
rides. Countless systems and devices leverage
Lab Assignment 5: Energy
Instructors Overview
Energy is a key concept in physics. In this lab we will explore the concepts of
potential and kinetic energy and energy conversion. In the first part of the lab,
we will use a rubber popper to directly experim

1.A mass is executing simple harmonic motion with amplitude A. What is the total distance
traveled by the mass during one period of the oscillation? What is its dispalcement? Does your
answer depend on the time instant from which the period of the oscilla

Weight, Vertical Forces, and Elevator Problems. Examples:
1. What is the weight of a 200 kg object?
2. A woman exerts a force of 500 N straight up to lift a 35 kg basket. What is the acceleration of
the basket?

Atomic Physics.
1. a) An electron moves a distance of 6.0 cm when accelerated from rest by an electric field of
strength 2x10 4 N/C. Calculate the time of travel (m=9x10 31 kg). b) An electron moving with a
speed of 2.5x 10 7 m/s is deflected by an electr
