• ## Acceleration Of Gravity

In this experiment the main goal is to examine the correlation between position, velocity, time, and acceleration of objects, moving in one or two dimensions. Each and every experiment will be conducted under different conditions. For example, the first experiment requires a constant force (gravity) to act on the object, the picket fence. This experiments other condition is that we neglect friction. This object should be in nearly ideally circumstances. In the second experiment, the conditions are slightly different… In the third experiment, projectile motion… Experiment # 1 – Measuring the Acceleration of Gravity The object in motion is said to be in free fall. That is because the only force that is acting on the object is said to be the…

• ## The Graphs Of Position, Velocity And Acceleration

Graphs of Position, Velocity and Acceleration The use of graphs is very common in science, statistics, economic and etc; in physics the graphs are use to illustrate and compare quantitative data of motion, time, velocity, etc. The graph illustrates the trend accurately, also the trend can be use to predict future outcomes. Graphs are a useful tool to have a efficient description in less words. The Graphs of Position Graphs of position are a way to represent motion of an object or…

• ## The Effect Of Distance On Acceleration Of Motion

A ball, and a feather dropped at the same height will hit the ground at the same time when placed in a vacuum space. This is because acceleration of motion is the same for both object, and in this experiment, we are going to calculate accelerated motion using inclined planes. In this experiment, we will see whether “distance traveled is directly proportional to the square of the time”, and “if speed of a falling object depend only on the height from which it falls”. This experiment will give us…

• ## Newton's Second Law Of Acceleration Essay

Research: According to Newton 's Second law when force is increased acceleration increases assuming that mass stays constant. a=F/m Purpose: The purpose of this lab is to prove when force increases acceleration also increases. The independent variable is amount of force applied to the Lenny Board and the dependant variable is the acceleration of the Lenny Board. 3 controlled variables are mass, surface of testing, and the Lenny Board (the weight, the amount of grease on the bearings, ECT)…

• ## Essay On Barefoot Running

It is divided in two phases, the stance phase and the swing phase. During the stance phase, the lower extremity is in contact with the ground. This phase is formed by 5 different stages (the Heel Strike, Foot Flat, Mid Stance, Heel Off and Toe Off) which form the whole movement. In contrast, during the swing phase, the current limb, is not in contact with the ground. This phase has three stages ( Acceleration, Mid Swing and Deceleration) that generates the entire movement. • The aim of…

• ## Picket Fence Lab

To experimentally measure the downward acceleration solely due to gravity at the surface of the earth and with negligible air resistance on a free-falling object, a piece of clear plastic with evenly spaced black bars, labelled as a “picket fence,” was suspended from a string and dropped through a Photogate sensor. This software is used to measure the actual acceleration of gravity to compare it to the value provided by literature review. The Photogate sensor transmits an infrared beam of light…

• ## Lab Report: Uniform Motion Of The Ping-Pong Ball

Research Question 1 Hypothesis 1 Variables 1 Materials 2 Procedure 3 Background Information Motion is the change of position of an object with respect to time. The physical quantities velocity, acceleration, displacement, time and speed are used in the study of motion. If an object does not change position with respect to time, it is considered as stationary. Note that if an object is motionless, it does not necessarily mean that there is no force acting on it. Motion can also be studied by…

• ## Rationality And Newton's Second Law Of Motion Essay

object affect its acceleration? Is acceleration dependent of the mass of an object? How do they relate? Defining and testing Newton’s second law of motion familiarizes us with this relationship. In this experiment, we use the mass of an object as an independent variable to come to a conclusion about force and acceleration. By increasing the mass of an object at an incline, one can observe the change in acceleration and furthermore determine the net force acting on the object. With several…

• ## Air Force Observation Essay

What are the x and y components of acceleration when the projectile is in motion? Call y positive upwards. The x component of acceleration is zero because projectiles have a constant velocity, resulting in no horizontal acceleration. The y component of acceleration is a constant -9.8 m/s2 in relation to the gravitational force acting on the projectile. Why does the x component of velocity remain constant? The x component of velocity remains constant because since the horizontal acceleration is…

• ## Simple Pendulum Experiment

Experiment-1 Simple pendulum: Aim: The main aim of this simple pendulum experiment is to investigate the relationship between the time period of a simple pendulum (oscillation) and the effective length (total length) of the simple pendulum. The three variables in Experiment-1 Simple pendulum: Independent variable: The independent variable in this experiment is the length of the string of the pendulum that could be changed. Dependent variable: The dependent variable is the time period for one…
