Frictional Forces and Work- Energy For a Non Conservative Force
Introduction:
The purpose of this lab was to investigate the laws of static, kinetic and rolling friction. Later, we
explore the effect of these forces on the Work-Energy Method. Because fric
Electric Potentials and Fields
Introduction:
The objective of this lab is to study electrical potentials, electric fields, and equipotential
curves produced by various electrostatic charge distributions. The potentials are measured in a
tray of water that
The Motion of a Charge in a Magnetic Field
Introduction
The objectives of the lab experiment include studying circular motion of an electron moving in a
uniform magnetic field and obtaining charge to mass ration to analyze the motion in an electric
field.
Conservation of Momentum and Impulse-Momentum Principle
Introduction:
For this lab, we want to explore the Conservation of Momentum Principle. To do this we
examine a totally inelastic collision of two carts. Next, we want to study an elastic collision wh
Kinematics in Two Dimensions
Introduction
The purpose of this experiment is to learn how to use Data Studio as well as utilize Microsoft
Excel to analyze, plot, and model data. In addition, this experiment is designed to give students
experience using pho
Newtons Second Law, Work and Energy
Introduction
The purpose of this lab was to explore Newtons Second Law, Conservation of Energy and the
Energy Method in three different parts. In part A, Newtons Second Law was experienced. The
theory was that the hangi
Resistance and Capacitance
Introduction:
The objectives of this lab are studying properties of resistors and capacitors including
Ohms law, parallel and series connection of resistors, temperature dependence of resistance,
charge and discharge of a capaci
Introduction
In this lab we observe the vertical, oscillatory motion of a mass connected to a string. We first
test Newtons Second Law in part A. In Part B we study kinetic, potential, and kinetic energies.
In Part C, we see the mass moving with a resisti

Introduction:
In this lab, we want to study the motion of a baseball in free fall with almost negligible resistive
force. We obtain the velocity
Dynamics of Circular Motion and Resistive Force Models
Introduction:
The objectives of this lab include measuring the radial force exerted on an object using the
dynamics of circular motion and resistive force models. We will compare the radial force exer
