Abstract
Introduction
Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system, right behind Jupiter, and
ranked sixth in the distance to the sun. Saturns largest moon, Titan,
Conclusion
In this experiment the objective was to have a very small percent error between the total initial
momentum and the total final momentum, because theoretically the momentum should be
conserved in a frictionless collision. However, our results we
Introduction
The purpose of this lab was to replicate the human arm through the use of levers, weights and
strings. Our goal was to determine whether the human arm was designed for speed or for
strength. This was accomplished by comparing the linear veloc
Analysis
In the first part of this lab, the acceleration vectors were obtained by subtracting
displacement vectors (x) and dividing by (t)2.
From the 5th spark to the 15th spark, the acceleration was 73.45 cm/s2 and from the 10th to
the 20th spark the acc
Abstract
Newtons second law was verified experimentally by using a glider on a frictionless air track, which was
pulled by hanging masses. The acceleration was caused by these masses pulling on the glider and was
calculated using a computer program. When
Abstract
The purpose of this experiment was to verify Newtons second law; F=ma. This law can be applied to
uniform circular motion. The centripetal force is
By plotting the centripetal force vs. the centripetal acceleration, the slope should equal the mas

Discussion
Based on our graph, it is clear that the range of the ball increases as the height of launch
increases, due to the acceleration of gravity. We originally thought there would be a direct
linear relation between R and h. It turned out to be simil
Abstract
Newtons second law is Fnet=Mtotal a.
Therefore a= Fnet /Mtotal
For the atwood machine, Fnet is also equal to the difference in weights : (M)g
Mtotal is also equal to 2M + M
Therefore
This experiment examined the relationship between acceleration
Abstract
The objective of this lab was to experimentally determine the resultant of several vector
forces. This was obtained by finding the balancing force (equilibrant) of the weights and
changing its direction by 180 degrees, since the equilibrant is op
