Procedure
Measure length and mass of one string; calculate linear
density (mass/length)
Kinematics ReKaps
Kinematics equations to remember are ->
VAT: vf=vi+at
VAX: v2=vi2+2ax
TAX: x=vit+0.5a(t2)
If you have uniform acceleration, you can also use the fourth kinematic equation:
x = (Vi + Vf) * t.

Rotational Equilibrium ReKaps
You can maximize torque by applying force at 90 degrees to rotating arm, as
sin(90)=1, and, thus, when the Fapplied is perpendicular to the moment arm, r, = rF.
With torques, counterclockwise is defined as positive, clockwise

Power, no matter what form of it we are talking about, is always just equivalent to
the energy change / time. The unit for power is the Watt; you can get that from
the equation:
P = Energy / time = J / s = W.
