Purpose: the purpose of this lab is to investigate the relationship between the speed of an object in uniform circular motion (ucm) and the centripetal force on the object. Centipetal force lab purpose the purpose is to find the relationship between centripetal force and tangential velocity we have to graph the data we collect and determine a mathematical model that describes the relationship equipment - string. Lab 3 15 lab 3 centripetal force introduction those of you who have tied an object to a string and whirled it in a horizontal circle above your. Lab 5 centripetal force and acceleration objectives (1) study the forces on an object moving in a circular path (2) verify that the centripetal force is given by. This type of acceleration is called uniform centripetal acceleration since the a piece of dust remaining in place on the rim of the pulley would experience two types of linear acceleration: centripetal acceleration directed towards the center of lab: resource lesson: review. To measure the centripetal acceleration of a body in circular motion and to determine the centripetal force 42 experiment 7: centripetal force procedure 1 open logger pro and connect the force sensor and motion detector to the lab pro 2 calibrate the force sensor (experiment ) calibrate. Centripetal acceleration 2 b mass in equilibrium centripetal force apparatus 2 set of masses and hanger 3 stopwatch 4 string 5 level 6 construct a data table like the following in your lab report: r (cm) mbob(kg.
View notes - centripetal acceleration lab from phys c21 at atlantic cape community college experiment 5: centripetal acceleration khadija osman date performed: 02 march 2013 1400-hours phy 211. Centripetal acceleration formula questions: 1) you are whirling a ball attached to a string such that you describe a circle of radius 75 cm, at a velocity of 150 m/s. Centripetal acceleration introduction vernier dual-range force sensor slotted lab masses right-angle clamp metric tape mass hanger wikipedia warns that the centripetal force is not to be confused with centrifugal force it. Learn what centripetal acceleration means and how to calculate it. Centripetal force lab conclusion authored by: our data represents a direct relationship between velocity and centripetal force as we had hypothesized newton's second law also states how force and acceleration. Force is always mass times acceleration, so to find centripetal force we just multiply centripetal acceleration by a mass in this lab we will observe how centripetal force varies with different radii.
In order to maintain a circular path, a centripetal force must be maintained in other words, an inward pulling force is exerted by your hand on the string. Open the virtual centripetal force lab on the website you'll see a 70's era technics® direct drive turntable surrounding it you should see all its controls and other apparatus angular acceleration up to the target angular speed.
Transcript of circular motion lab circular motion lab by emmanuel agno, ryan baldeviso, angelo cocadiz our hypothesis was proven correct because in our results the greater the mass the greater the centripetal force and acceleration were. Formula the magnitude of the centripetal force on an object of mass m moving at tangential speed v along a path with radius of curvature r is: = = where is the centripetal acceleration the direction of the force is toward the center of the circle in which the object is moving, or the osculating circle (the circle that best fits the local path. Centripetal force f is the net force causing the centripetal acceleration of an object performing uniform circular motion its magnitude is given by the equation: f = mrs physics lab report centripetal force.
This activity is a indoor lab where student gather data about centripital acceleration and write up a lab based on their findings. Chapter 5 uniformcircularmotion and centripetal force name: lab partner: section: 51 purpose in the experiment, uniform circular motion and centripetal force will be explored. Chapter 6 uniformcircularmotion and centripetal force name: lab partner: section: 61 purpose in the experiment, uniform circular motion and centripetal force will be explored.
Take your students on an amusement park ride—for just a penny discuss how an object can be accelerating yet moving at constant speed investigate how a change in direction (at constant speed) is acceleration that is, centripetal acceleration. Video tutorial for nys regents physics students on centripetal acceleration and uniform circular motion. Centripetal acceleration lab by tom blum pyl 105: centripetal acceleration centripetal acceleration a pendulum consists of a weight (known in this context as a bob) on the end of a string (or rigid rod.
Purpose to be able to understand and verify the relationship centripetal force, mass, velocity, and the radius of orbit for a body that is undergoing centripetal acceleration. Understanding centripetal force lab's angular velocity and tangential velocity 2 explore how changing the radius will affect the ity and therefore the centripetal acceleration increases because the pocketlab will have to travel a greater dis. This unit is about the forces that cause central acceleration in uniform circular motion recall that uniform circular motion in solving problems in before coming to lab, you need to read the sections in your book on serway and vuille (211): 74 centripetal acceleration serway and. 1 circular motion circular motion lab relationship between the centripetal acceleration and the angular velocity for an object in circular motion. Circular motion and is called centripetal acceleration the term centripetal comes from latin words meaning centripetal acceleration equation (1) will be tested is useful, it is more convenient for today's lab to express the same result in terms of the time t needed for one complete. Hang calibrated lab masses from the end of the small test mass until the spring is stretched to the same length it had during rotation evaluate the magnitude of the centripetal acceleration, ac= v 2/r and determine the centripetal force 3.
Centripetal force lab name: taylor penna date: march centripetal and gravity are both fictitious forces period: acceleration due to gravity: purpose: the purpose of this lab was to determine that relationship between centripetal force. Centripetal force objectives in this lab you will 2/r is the centripetal acceleration experimental results for the centripetal force one result is obtained from equation 3 because equation 3 depends upon the measurements of m, r. Centripetal force 1 introduction in classical mechanics, the dynamics of a point particle are described by newton's 2nd law, f~= m~a, where f~ is the net force, mis the mass, and ~ais the acceleration.
