Summary
In this lab experiment, our group worked with vectors and how to
mathematically add them together to get the resultant. A vector is a mathematical
concept to represent quantities that have magnitude and direction. Vector
quantities include displac

Summary
One of the most puzzling forces in all of nature is friction. It will change
direction if need be to always oppose motion. This means that it can reduce
acceleration and even cause a negative acceleration but it never makes an
object move faster.

Summary
The purpose of this lab was to practice making accurate measurements,
observe the relationship between an instruments precision and its construction,
learn that uncertainty in measurements is unavoidable, analyze the
measurements and determine the

Summary
In this experiment, the projectile motion of an object was studied by
analyzing the position as a function of time using a video of a bouncing ball. This
was accomplished by taking snapshots of the position of the ball in time. A
video camera was

Summary
The general purpose of this experiment is to test whether or not linear
momentum and kinetic energy are both conserved in a two-object collision that
comprise an isolated system. If two or more objects interact by internal forces,
such as those in

Summary
Simple harmonic motion is typical of the motion of a mass oscillating on
the end of a spring. It is important in physics because it is a model for many
different phenomena. In this experiment, a spring was attached to a support

Summary
Waves of various kinds are encountered daily in our world. Water waves,
such as giant rollers in the ocean, can be sources of entertainment or
destruction. Violent waves in the earths crust due to shifting along fault lines can
cause tremors that

Summary
In part 1 of this experiment, the thermal expansion and calorimetry were
examined in the thermal properties of matter. This was done so by obtaining 3
metal rods (brown, silver, and bronze), along with a thermometer, linear
expansion apparatus, st

Summary
The purpose of this experiment is to: (1) investigate collisions between
objects using a ballistic pendulum; (2) determine the relationship between mass
and velocity before and after the collision; (3) confirm that linear momentum is
conserved in

Summary
The goal of this experiment is to show that, if no additional work is done by
dissipative forces, the total energy of an object is a constant, that is PE + KE =
constant. PE is potential energy and KE being kinetic energy. In part 1 of this
experi

Summary
The purpose of this lab was to examine the concepts of displacement,
velocity, and acceleration while describing the motion of a body falling freely in
the Earths gravitational field. A heavy metallic mass was suspended by an
electromagnet. When t

Summary
This lab is divided into three different parts. (1) Proving the equilibrium
occurs when the sum of torques is zero and the sum of forces is zero. (2)
Predicting the relative angular velocities of objects based on their shapes and
sizes. (3) Showin
