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) itself…

Diagram 1.6: Diagram showing tension force in the string (from 0 cm increasing in 1 cm until a displacement of 15 cm has been attained) This diagram shows the manner in which the tension force applied to the string was calculated. Starting at 0 centimeters, forces were provided in the string such that the string would extend one additional centimeter from the previous measurement. Using the Capstone® software, the force applied to the string was calculated at the given horizontal…

Milaya Ruffin Mr. Simmons Biology October 14, 2016 Research Many people have gone on roller coasters, but have they really thought about how they work? All of the tosses and turns. How does it stay on the track? How does it slow down? How does it speed up? Slow and clanking, the string of cars is pulled up to the highest point of a roller coaster. One by one, the cars start going downhill on the other side, until gravity kicks into action and the full weight of the train is going down into…

Newton's three laws of motion consist of information about gravity, force and acceleration. The law’s where written by Newton in 1666. Each law explains a different theory about how gravity works. The first law talks about why objects stay in motion or rest unless an unbalanced force is acted upon that object. The next law explains how force equals acceleration. The third law talks about how if any action is created there is a equal and opposite reaction that appears. Each one of these laws…

Figure (4.2): Failure pattern of cylinder specimen (CY1). Under pure axial compression loading for cube specimen (C1), the failure cracks generated are approximately parallel to the direction of load as shown in figure (4.3) with some cracks formed at an angle to the applied load. As a result, lateral shearing stress is produced in the cube specimen. The effect of this shear decrease towards the center of cubes; so these sides of the cube have near vertical cracks at the cube center.…

In gymnastics, the physics involved in energy, Newton’s Laws of Motion, and angular momentum each contribute immensely to being successful in the Olympics. Learning how to master these physical science concepts can aid in becoming a strong olympic gymnast. To begin, there is the running start; this is where energy plays a major role. During a gymnast’s running start for a vault, she gains kinetic energy, which is, simply put, the energy of motion. Looking at the equation for kinetic energy (KE =…
