Projectile Motion In this experiment we will study motion in two-dimensions. An object which has motion in both the X and Y direction has a two dimensional motion. We will first determine at what velocity the ball is being fired from the firing mechanism,
Lab 2 - Motion in One dimension
In this lab, you will explore motion in one dimension. A computer will aid in acquiring the data and displaying the data to be analyzed. Theory: If an object is moving at a constant acceleration over a fixed period of time,
Lab 1
Metric system and unit converions
This lab is intended as an introduction to a new measurement system, scientific notation, units, and conversions. Hopefully upon completion of this lab exercise the foundation of your knowledge of what might be some
The Second Law of Motion
Theory: The Second Law of Motion states that: The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force applied to the object and inversely proportional to the mass of the object. If the acceleration is in units of m
Studying the Laws of Conservation of Momentum and Energy using a Ballistic Pendulum
Theory: Conservation of Momentum: Momentum is the product of an objects mass and direction. Momentum is also a vector therefore the direction of the object is important to
Archimedes Principle and Applications Objectives: Upon successful completion of this exercise you will have . 1. . utilized Archimedes principle to determine the density and specific gravity of a variety of substances. 2. . utilized Archimedes principle t
