What is the kinetic coefficient of friction between the block and the ramp?
First we weighed the wooden block and found that it had a mass of 458.7grams. Then, we set the
3 brands of gum: Freedent, Bazooka, Trident.
1. weigh wrapper and record
2. Weigh wrapper with gum and record
3. Chew gum until flavorless
4. Weigh again with wrapper and record
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 un
The research question was what is the mathematical relationship between distance and
time for an object rolling down a ramp of constant angle?
After setting the metal ramp at 25 degrees, we began by choosin

Which of the following: mass, surface area, and surfaces, affect the angle at which an
object slips on an inclined plane?
The mass does not affect it because Dr. Murdock informed us
Standing Waves Lab
In order to measure wavelength, we calculated how many full waves (crest + trough)
were present as we moved the spring. For frequency, we had two people move the
spring left to right for 10 seconds and counted how many fu
