1. Is the value of acceleration g= 9.81 m/s^2 vital for this experiment? In other words,
could this experiment be successful on the Moon, where the acceleration due to gravity
has a different value? Explain your answer.
No 9.81m/s^2 is not vital in this e
Conclusion
Upon completion of this experiment we found that the data collected was very accurate.
This experiment allowed us to view and analyze how different forces and masses acting on a
single ring can cancel each other out or create an equilibrium for
