Simple Harmonic Motion
Objective/Theory:A mass connected to a spring hanging vertically from a fixed surface, makes the spring
expand from its original position. When a gre

Projectile Motion
Introduction:In this lab we will be assessing projectile motion. A projectile is simply an object, that
when thrown or launch has solely gravity acting u

Ballistic Pendulum
Objective/Theory:In this lab we will be assessing conservation of momentum and conservation of energy.
When two objects collide, their resulting velocity

Calorimetry
Objective/Theory:When two objects with different temperatures are brought into contact with one another,
thermal heat is exchanged between them in such a way tha
Lab #10 Calorimetry & Conservation of Energy
PURPOSE The purpose of this lab is mainly to test the prediction of the equation: mwaterCwTw = mmetalCmTm. Using a calorimeter, heat transfer between to substances, water and metal, will be measured. The l
LAB 8 Simple Harmonic Motion & Hooke's Law
PURPOSE The purpose of this lab is to better understand Hooke's Law and simple harmonic motion. Simple harmonic motion is a periodic oscillation which in this case is the oscillation of a weighted spring tha
Lab #3 PROJECTILE MOTION
PURPOSE The purpose of this ballistic projectile motion laboratory was to use vertical and horizontal components of the initial velocity of an object being shot out of a projectile launcher to calculate the distance the obje

Lab #3- Projectile Motion
Purpose: To prove that the equations are correct and to determine the range of a projectile. The answer should equal 0 when plugging values into the equation:
0= h + Voy
