Centripetal Force
February 21, 2017
Part I: Proposal
Theory
Centripetal force means the force acting on an object moving in a circular motion is
directed towards the center of the circle. The velocity of an object moving with a

Mechanical Equivalent of Heat
April 18, 2017
Part I: Proposal
Theory
Heat has been used to do work since the late 1700s. Work can also be done to produce
heat. In this lab we will be using friction to create heat within an aluminum cylinder.

Part I Proposal
Theory
The relationship between force, mass, and acceleration in a system will be calculated
using the following statements. The net force on a system is the difference in weight
between two masses conn

Part I: Proposal
Theory:
A black body is an idealized physical body that absorbs all incident electromagnetic
radiation, regardless of frequency or angle of incidence. The StefanBoltzmann law
describes the power radiated fr
Galileos Motion Experiment
January 31, 2017
Part I Proposal
Theory
Galileo states that an object starting at rest will roll down an inclined plane with
uniform acceleration. This means that for every equal time interval, the velocity
increases at equal in
Springs and Simple Harmonic Motion
February 28, 2017
Part I: Proposal
Theory Consider Hookes Law: F=K ( xx O ) , this works for one dimension.
Consider the following equations to look at the projection in the x-direction:
x=x O + Acos ( t ) a=2 Acos ( t )
Projectile Motion
February 7, 2017
Part I Proposal
Theory
Projectile motion is the two-dimensional motion of an object that is thrown with
an initial velocity and continues to move under the influence of gravity alone. The
projectile is the object thrown
