Understanding Motion
Description: In this lab the goal was to match two graphs with a sonar sensor that we need to
setup with the computer. The first was a position graph, we had to match our position to the
line the g

String Resonance
Description: In this lab the goal was to find the resonant frequencies at various weights
attached to a string. Apart from the frequency we also had to find the period and the velocity at
such point

Forces and Collisions
Theory: The objective for this lab was to observe the relationship between force and impulse by
observing different impacts with different materials. We had to observe the force and impulses
recorded

Free-Fall
Theory: The objective for this lab was to test the relationship between position and time. How
long it would take for a steel ball at a certain height to hit the sensor and measuring the velocity
it had. As well

Energy
Theory: The objective for this lab was to identify the energy being recorded with our data. We
had to predict the graphs of both the kinetic and potential energy. We also had to find the
formula of the potenti

Force Vectors
Theory: The objective for this lab was to reach equilibrium for an object. We had to observe the
relationship between the weight and angle of the objects. We had to observe how much weight
it took on one of

Conservation of Momentum
Theory: The objective for this lab was to observe the momentum of collision and measure that
momentum of the collision. To find the momentum we used mass times velocity formula. We
had to als

Buoyancy
Description: In this lab the goal was to find the buoyant force. First we had to find the
dimensions of three different objects. We had to find the dimensions volume and buoyant
force. Second part of the lab
