Vector experiment
Objectives.:
The objective is to determine the components of a single vector and to find the sum of two or more vectors using the force table.
Apparatus :
A force table, mass hanger and a slotted mass set are required to complete this experiment.
Experimental procedure: On the table, you set a 200 gram mass at 30 degrees. Then you place another 200 gram mass on the 210 degree mark. Then we have to replace the mass at the 30 degree mark with two masses, one at the 0 degree mark and one at the 80 degree mark. Essentially we are trying to calculate the x and y component vectors of a 200g mass at 30 degrees. So what we did was we just guess and checked the variables of weight at the 0 degree mark and at the 90 degree mark’s pullys until the ring was centered. You can us+e the weight on each pully to calculate the magnitude and the direction of the component vectors at 90 and 0 degrees. For part c you need to find the components of triangles a, b, and c as labeled on the front bottom of my lab. You then need to find the sum all the x component and y component vectors. Then from the sum of the components you can use the Pythagorean theorem to find the resultant vector R.
Data: part a experimental ax= 875g*m/s^2 ay = 980g*m/s^2 the theoretical values for ax and were

Using this stock solution, different concentrations were made and placed in the sprectrometer for observation. The absorbances and transmittances were recorded for use when identifying the amount of the color-absorbing copper ions later. A graph was plotted of Absorbance v.

A 10g-50g of mass is used to suspend the artery and vein; and measured it with a 1-meter ruler standing 90˚ on the table to distinguish how long it stretches with a specific mass weight. Average Length ± 0.05g/mm | Mass ± 0.05mm/g | Artery | Vein | | Trail 1 | Trial 2 | Average | Trial 1 | Trial 2 | Average | 0g | 393 | 377 | 385 | 370 | 374 | 372 | 10g | 392 | 376 | 384 | 368 | 372 | 370 | 20g | 391 | 375 | 383 | 366 | 370 | 368 | 30g | 390 | 374 | 382 | 364 | 368 | 366 | 40g | 389 | 373 | 381 | 362 | 366 | 364 | 50g | 388 | 372 | 38 | 360 | 364 | 362 | Data Presentation Table 2: Below are the results of the artery and vein’s length difference in mm. These results were known when the average results from the two trials were calculated. The results can be calculated with the following formula: "trial 1 + trial 2; then divide the result by 2 to get the average mean results”.

371 Words | 2 PagesThe method used to convert the measurement in inches to a decimal was to take the recording of the number plus the fraction out of 8 and add it to the nearest tenth of the smallest division. For the Vernier Caliper, we recorded the reading by finding a mark on the sliding scale that lined up with any mark on the fixed scale. Then the lines that line up with the number on the fixed scale is recorded based on the intervals between two of the numbers. For the micrometer, the number of millimeters on the frame is first read. If the next mark is visible, we add 0.5 mm.

## Testing Forces by Reaching Equilibrium

2187 Words | 9 PagesLAB REPORT 4 Testing Forces by Reaching Equilibrium ABSTRACT: This lab measures the equilibrium of three weights and four weights on a line to determine if adding all the horizontal forces and vertical forces summed to together equal zero. We found that once we were able to determine the vertical and horizontal forces together they did in fact equal zero, if we determined the forces to be the weight in kilograms times 9.8 for the gravity constant on earth. We also found systematic errors of about 0.325 in our force sensor when measuring the force downward from .150 kilograms to 0.350 kilograms. The errors were in this range. We also worked with a pulley system in which we discovered that we could reduce the force load by one half by using a pulley system with two parallel lines holding weight.
