Accelerated Motion

Acceleration is a change in velocity during a time interval. The change in velocity can either be a
change in speed, a change in direction of motion, or both. Mathematically, average acceleration is
defined as change in vel

Introduction:
This lab experiment explored the concept of electric fields through
the use of charged electrodes and a conducting sheet. The purpose of this
lab is to visualize the presence of an electric field by tracing its
equipotential lines and E-fiel

Abstract
In this lab, we better understood inertia by simulating an experiment using spinning mass.
Similar to our last lab, we conducted another experiment that analyzed centripetal force. We
rotated the apparatus with no additional mass and a

Abstract:
The purpose of this lab is to understand how to calculate and manipulate vectors using
magnitude and direction, specifically in vector addition to reach a resultant vector. Using a

Abstract
By analyzing the motion of a low-friction cart with different masses positioned on an
inclined plane, we were able to understand why objects accelerate over time. We used the Logger
Pro software and the motion detector to help us examine

Abstract
The intent of this lab is to understand centripetal forces, this is when a force acts on an
object which moves in a circular path. We initiated the experiment by using a Manual SargentWelch Centripetal Force Apparatus in which centripeta

Abstract
The intention of this lab is to understand simple harmonic motion which is produced by periodic
motions by experimenting in a spring-mass system. Since our lab consists of physical systems, we can
identify variables and figure out its e

Lab 2: Abstract
The purpose of this lab is to learn about motion in general terms, such as: location, displacement,
velocity, and acceleration. The time required and the direction is also associated with these terms

Intro
Motion and gravity relates to us every day and everywhere in our lives. Precise descriptions in the
changes of motion are needed to be understood in order to understand the physical world. The four
general terms used are: location, displacement, vel

The goal of this lab is to learn about waves and resonances. Waves are a way of throwing
energy without transfer of matter. There are two main classifications of waves, longitudinal and
transverse. A wave has a capacity to exert a f

The goal of this lab is to understand free fall. Free fall is when only gravity is acting on an object.
Many questions are asked, such as if the horizontal force has anything to do with the downward force.
