Procedure summary;
In the lab Unbalanced Forces we used a total of 12 pennies divide equally containers. We
measured the mass of all 12 pennies and the put six pennies is container M and the other six

Our calculated error was 6.17%. Our data was pretty consistent when we did our calculations for
g, and we calculated g to be 11.02%. Our points on the graph were close to a straight line but

MOTION & g Individual Report
Essence:
Theory: By using the formula y = (gt^2), where t is in time, y is in height, and g is gravity. When
ignoring air resistance, we know that the acceleration is 9.81 m/s^2. With that be

We calculated the mean of our KE was .2962 J and PE was .2156 J. Next, we found the difference
between our KE and PE to be 27.2%. With these calculations our kinetic energy was bigger than
