FC: Circular Motion
1: Introduction | In this Lab Report we determined how the velocity of an object in circular motion is related to the centripetal force that contains that motion.
2: Objectives | 1. Examine several factors that influence centripetal acceleration. 2. Generate graphs from experimental data. 3. Interpret graphical data.
3: Materials | 1. Balance 2. Centripetal force apparatus. 3.Large rubber stoppers. 4. Nylon string. 5. Stop watch. 6. Plastic tubing. 7. Masking tape. 8. Meter stick. 9. Metric masses. 10. Metric ruler. 11. Spring Scale.
6: Data Collections
7: And Results
8: conclusions | The trials must be mad with constant radius. The quantity K is constant. The centripetal force is equal to the force measure in the spring scale.
