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)

Formal Lab Report: Centripetal Forces
The goal of this lab is to determine the relationship between centripetal force and period by
spinning different weighted masses in a uniform circular motion. The results from t
5.1 Question: A Toyota AE86 Trueno has a mass of 1010 +/-90 kg and is moving with a velocity of 150+/-3
km/h north. What is the cars momentum in SI units?
M=kg ; v=km/h
P=kg*km/h => P=kg*m/s

The goal of this experiment was to use dynamic and static methods of measurement to
calculate the spring constant of two different springs. The result of the spring constants was then
put to test in the k-equilibrium lab, where both strings acts

1- To increase the range of a ball one may throw it with more force so that it has a
greater initial velocity and thus travels farther. One can also change the angle which
it is thrown which will change the range as well.

Utilize the methods seen in lecture to solve these exercises.
You learn by doing: spend time trying the exercises before looking at the answer key!
Draw the product(s) of these reactions (stereochemistry is important). Indi
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

7.1: You could increase the initial velocity of the projectile to increase its range. You could also change
the projectiles launch angle. 45 degrees will give the farthest range so put the angle as close as possible
to 45 degrees.
