The Effect of Height on Gravitational Potential Energy
Purpose: The purpose of this lab was to find the effect of height on the potential energy stored
from gravity by measuring velocity on an inclined frictionless surface.

Buoyant Force Lab:
Displaced Water Method:
Displaced water= 24.20g (mass of cup and displaced water) - 2.72g (mass of cup)
Displaced Water: .02148 kg
Buoyant Force= .02148 kg (mass) x 9.8 m/s^2 (acceleration)
Buoyant Force= .211 N
Net Force Method:
Gravit
The graphs for the xdirection say that
there is no
acceleration and
therefore no
force. The
acceleration v
time graph is at 0
m/s2.
The graphs for the ydirection indicate
that there is a
constant
acceleration of
gravity at 9.8m/s2
The slope of the v vs
