Lab 3: Linear Motion
Jasmine Tazi
Lab Partner: Glory Anugo
Lab TA: Laila Hassan
Date: 9/17/13
Theory
The net distance traveled during a certain time interval, represented
by the variable
X, is the displacement.
X is equal to the final distance
minus the i

Lab #2: Vectors
TA: Nicholas Carrara
Date: 09/09/15
Theory:
A vector is a physical quantity that has both a magnitude and direction; this
includes forces and displacements. Vectors can be added or subtracted. A vector is
usually represented by an arrow, w

Lab #4: Measuring g
TA: Nick Carrara
Date: 10/7/15
Theory:
It is well known that if the effects of air resistance are ignored, any object
dropped in the vicinity of Earths surface will move with constant acceleration, g. The
direction of g is down, toward

Lab #5: Projectile Motion
TA: Nick Carrara
Date: 10/14/15
Theory:
The purpose of this lab is to study projectile motion of an object which is
launched horizontally and drops a certain height before it hits the ground. Projectile is
defined as, any body th

Lab # 3 Linear Motion
TA: Nick Carrara
Date: 09/30/15
Theory:
In this lab, we used the computer motion sensor to make plots of position, velocity and
acceleration as functions of time, and compare different ways of computing velocity from
position. Displa

Lab #6: Impulse and Momentum
TA: Nick Carrara
Date: 10/21/15
Theory:
The Law of Conservation of Momentum states that the momentum of a system
remains unchanged in the absence of external forces. A good demonstration of this
principle exists in collisions.

Lab #10 Density and Buoyancy
TA: Nick Carrara
Date: 11/18/15
Theory:
The area, A, of the bottom of a rectangular block of length (L), width (w), and
height (h), is A=Lw and the volume, V, is V = Ah=Lwh . If the block has a mass
m
. Water has a density of

Lab #7: Centripetal Force
TA: Nick Carrara
Date: 10/28/15
Theory:
An object that moves at a constant speed and changes direction is also experiencing
acceleration even though its speed never changes. Both the acceleration produced by changing
speed and th

Lab #8: Moment of Inertia
Theory:
If an object starts with moment of inertia Io and angular velocity
o , the
angular momentum L= l o o will be constant unless an external torque is applied. If
the objects moment of inertia changes to lf, the angular velo

Lab TA: Laila Hassan
Date: 9/24/13
Theory
The acceleration due to gravity on the Earths surface is
approximately equal to 9.8 m/s^2. This is the average at sea level so it
varies depending on elevat

Lab #1: Statistics and Uncertainty
Lab TA: Nicholas Carrara
Date: 09/02/2015
Theory:
A major part of the scientific process is comparing theory to measurement.
Uncertainty, or the accuracy of a measurement, is a critical component you need to
know in orde

Lab 8: Moment of Inertia
Jasmine Tazi
Lab Partner: Glory Anugo
Lab TA: Jenn Carter
Date: 10/28/13
Theory
Angular motion is the motion of a body among a fixed axis. Angular motion is
comparable to linear motion in many aspects. The equations for linear mot

Lab 6: Impulse and Momentum
Jasmine Tazi
Lab Partner: Solange Sylvester & Glory Anugo
Lab TA: Laila Hassan
Date: 10/7/13
Theory
Momentum is described as the quantity of motion of a moving body. It
is measured as a product of its mass and velocity. Impulse

Date: 11/4/13
Theory
A restoring force equal to the displacement of a mass oscillating on a spring is
equal to F = -kx = ma. The displacemen

Lab 10: Density and Buoyancy
Jasmine Tazi
Lab Partner: Glory Anugo & Max
Lab TA: Jenn Carter
Date: 11/12/13
Theory
To compute density, using the volume and mass, the equation (3) p = m / v is
used. An object will float if the density is less than that of

Lab 5: Projectile Motion

Lab TA: Laila Hassan
Date: 10/1/13
Theory
When a moving object experiences no acceleration in the x direction
and only gravitational acceleration in the y direction, we call it projectile
