a) In order to create a scatter-plot using Excel, you must first have your data in columns ready to be
exported into a plot. Once, that is completed, highlight the column that will be used for the xaxis. Then while hold

Lab 9: Parallel Axis Theorem
Abstract: The experiment performed was to test a model developed form the Parallel Axis Theorem to
experimental results to determine the accuracy of the developed model. We examined this by looking at
the effects

Question 4.2:
a) During uniform circular motion the bodys angular speed is constant, however the bodys
velocity Is changing with time and therefore resulting in acceleration because the bodys
direction is changing, giving the

Abstract: This experiment was a test to relate a model developed from the Parallel Axis
Theorem to experimental results to determine the accuracy of the model. We examined the effect
of a varying moment of inertia on the angular accele

Lab 5: The Conservation of Momentum
Abstract: This experiment performed was to compare the model developed from the theory of
conservation of momentum to experimental results to measure the accuracy of the model. The model

Question 10.1
a. By taking the partial derivative of x (t) = x o + vot + 1/2at2 we can see that F/m = d2x(t)/dt2.
dx(t)/dt = 0 + 0 + at
d2x(t)/dt2 = a
Therefore F/m = a = d2x(t)/dt2.
b. The partial derivative of y(x,t)

a. If N was doubled, N would decrease. This is because N is in the denominator.
b. If N was quadrupled, it would decrease even more so. Because N is in the denominator, any
increase would cause the value to be divided by an even larger number and give
