A. Background The forces that are involve with the experiments are basically focused on the concurrent forces. The experiment also allows us to develop the condition of balancing or arranging the angles both sides on a force table. This laboratory experiment allows us to take the mathematical abstraction of a vector to make it tangible as possible. This experiment will look into two ways of

The string in the anchor should be flexible to enable to adjust the pulleys downward until the strings are near to the top surface of the force table. We also pull the knot slightly to one side and release it to enable to scrutinize that the knot returns to the center. Then if not, just adjust the mass or/and angle of the third pulley until the knot constantly comes back to the center when it is pulled slightly to the one side.

A. Data Ananlysis

We determine the mass that should be postpone from the third pulley. The cause of this experiment is also to determine the angles and to calculate the magnitude and also the direction of the equilibrant. As a result of the component method and the graphical method. The composition of current forces enables us to measure the masses, angles and measurements that is present in the force table.

B. Causes of Errors and Recommendations

The errors that we found out in this experiment are in the angles and error in length. This also would require doing the calculation that will also be occurred in human error because this experiment does a lot of calculations.Also the environmental error is present in the experiment due to the air that can affect the knot in the center.

C. Answer to Questions

1. In the force table method, how was the vector sum of the forces determined? Differentiate from each other resultant
