Essay on The Force Table For Calculate The Vectors
Theoretical Background vector is consist of both magnitude and direction. magnitude and directions with different forces take a single point, we call it resultant force. by calculating the additions of a vector, we can locate the resultant force. looking at the graph, first we have to plot our two vectors, call it A and B. A and B represent two separate force. then line our 60° and 90 square ruler. we match 90° square rule to the tip of Vector A, and match 60° square rule to the length of vector B. we drew a line from the tip of vector A parallel to to B. we make sure the parallel line of vector A is equal to the length of vector B. calculating vector A and B the new line that we constructed will be the resultant.
Vector A + Vector B= Resultant
Apparatus and Procedure
Four weight hangers
60° and 90 square ruler
1. Set up a force table as in Fig. 1. Make sure the table is leveled before starting the experiment. Mount a pulley at the 20º mark on the force table and suspend a total of 100 grams over it. Mount a second pulley at the 120º mark and suspend a total of 200 grams over it. Draw a vector diagram to scale, using a scale of 20 grams per centimeter and determine graphically the direction and magnitude of…
