CENTRIPETAL FORCE
PURPOSE
Determination the centripetal force as a
function of the mass.
Determination the centrifugal force as a
function of the angular velocity.
THEORY
Lets say and object
moving along a circle
and we are investigating
motion of obje
FREE FALL EXPERIMENT
Purpose of The Experiment
To determine the functional relationship between height and time
of free fall (h=h(t)
To study the motion of a freely falling body and to determine the
acceleration of gravity by using sensitive devices.

Exp.1: Basics of Measurments
Units and unit conversion introduced
Dimensions and masses of several objects are
measured and density of objects are calculated

Because solely magnitude is not enough for definition,
units are

NOT shown with forces themselves, but just for today we will
show. Remember, when you are asked to draw a
