Addition of Force Vectors
In this experiment, the analytical and graphical techniques for adding vectors were explored. The
purpose of adding vectors is to determine the net force acting on an object. To calculate the
vectors, and l
In this study, the velocity and centripetal force for uniform circular motion was to be determined.
Using the materials shown in the pictures below, a static force was exerted on the heavy mass so
What is the meaning of the slope of the graph?
o The mass of the pulley
What are the units of the slope of the acceleration vs. force graph? Simplify
the units of the slope to fundamental units (m, kg, s).
o The units of the slope of the acceleration v
Explain the meaning of the slope and the y-intercept for your Force-mass graph;
o The slope gravitational force
o Y-intercept -
Write the equation relating the Force with the mass;

In this study, we measured the velocity of the projectile by two different methods. The first
method was performed using the Ballistic Pendulum Apparatus. We fired the projectile into the
pendulum and measured the
PERIODICITY OF THE PENDULUM
The purpose of this experiment was to verify the expression for the period of a simple pendulum.
In addition to this, the second part of this experiment was to find the local value of the
In this study, we were to find the moment of inertia of a rotating body, and examine its
dependence on mass distribution. Using a wheel, two photogates, sensors, weights and string, we
observed the rotat
In this study, the equations of projectile motion will be checked experimentally. This is done by
determining the muzzle velocity of a ball fired by a spring gun. A spring gun, a small ball (which
In this experiment, we will attempt to find the spring constant, k, using a uniform coil spring and
three different masses. Using a stand, the spring was hung from the top, and a mass was put at
the end of the sp
COLLISIONS ON THE TRACK
In this study, we illustrated the law of conservation of momentum for nearly elastic onedimensional collisions. Two gliders were launched in opposite directions (toward each other) on
a horizontal ai
Stretch and compress springs to explore the relationships between force, elastic potential
constant, and elongation. This lab will allow us to test the accuracy of Hookes law for a
simple object, a spring.
