Abstract This lab had two purposes. The first was to determine the relationship between the length of a stretched wire and the frequencies at which resonance occurs. The second was to study the relationship between the frequency of vibration and the tension and linear mass density of the wire. In the first part we found the resonance, frequency and wavelength of a wire and used this data to calculate the speed of the traveling waves. For first harmonic, our wavelength was 1.200 m, found by the formula λ=2L/n. In the second part we used tension and velocity to find mass density. For the first notch, with a tension of 10.3 N, the velocity was 86 m/s with a overall mass density of 0.018.
Discussion
In the lab we wanted to find the frequency at which resonance occurs on a stretched wire as well as look at the relationship between the frequency of vibration and tension and linear mass density of the wire.
For the first procedure, we increased the frequency until we found resonance, and recorded frequencies and nodes to calculate wavelength. We did this for first harmonic through fourth harmonic, and then found the velocities using our measurements. In the first harmonic phase, our signal generated frequency was 36±1 Hz, wire frequency was 72 Hz, the number of nodes was 2 and the wavelength was 1.200 m. This was found by using the equation λ=2L/n.
For the second procedure, using a wire of a certain linear mass density we found the frequency of the wire as it oscillated in its fundamental mode, or lowest resonance mode, as we increased the tension by moving the hanging mass to a higher notch. We performed this procedure again using a wire with a different linear mass

## Absorption Spectrum of a Conjugated Dye

1389 Words | 6 PagesExperiment 2.1 Absorption Spectrum of a Conjugated Dye Table of contents * Page 1 Title sheet & Table of contents * Page 2 Introduction & Abstract * Page 3 Abstract continued, Method & Results * Page 4 Results * Page 5 Results * Page 6 Results * Page 7 Discussion * Page 8 Introduction: The purpose of this experiment was to determine a relationship between energy levels and wavelengths in a range of dyes in a manner that would satisfy the Schrodinger wave equation and Eigen functions. This would be achieved by finding the maximum absorption for a particular dye and using that information, working out an alpha value to determine the wavelength of the molecule and from that, the discrete energy value. A successful experiment would involve the wavelength increasing as the number of conjugate electrons increases and also show a decrease in energy of the wavelength. Abstract: UV Vis spectroscopy is a method of analysis that measures transitions between a ground state and an excited state in a molecule. This method of analysis was used to determine the maximum absorption for the four dyes used in the experiment.

Partner: Qurban Aim: To explore how two different masses act with each other on a pulley and therefore calculate acceleration a (theoretical and experimental) and the Tension T. Hypothesis: When both masses are the same, there should be no acceleration. The larger the ratio between one mass and the other, the higher the acceleration should be. Materials: Pulley, string, mass 1 + 2, ruler, stopwatch, scissors Apparatus: Theory: Since we are trying to find a, the equations we need are: For experimental a: Transposed to: Theoretical a: For tension: where x = displacement u = initial velocity t = time taken = mass 1 = mass 2 Let Method: 1.

## Newton's Second Law: The Atwood Machine

2407 Words | 10 Pages1. INTRODUCTION Sir Isaac Newton produced three laws of motion. Newton’s second law of motion states that, “the acceleration (a) of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on it and inversely proportional to its mass” (VUILLE, 86). This second law can be written into mathematical terms and written as: a = Fnet /m However, the equation above is more commonly seen as: Fnet = ma In these equations a represents the acceleration of the object, m is the objects mass Fnet represents the vector sum of all the forces acting on the object. The Atwood machine is an apparatus that explores the idea states above.
