Electromagnetic Force
The studies of electromotive force have led to the most important applications of the 21 st
century. These important applications are the production, transfer, and utilization of electrical
energy. Electromotive force is not so much

Lab 4: Elastic Collision
Abstract (150 Words):
In the following experiment we observe the elastic collision between two objects of equal
mass on a level and frictionless surface. Our first objective is to verify that momentum is
conserved throughout the c
Lab 3: Conservation of Energy
Abstract (150 Words):
The objective of the following experiment is to verify the conservation of mechanical
energy as modeled by the equation of mechanical energy being the sum of its kinetic and
potential energy.
