Centripetal Force Experiment

Centripetal Force By: Alexander Jones Abstract In this experiment Newton’s first and second laws of motion were used to study and verify the expression for the force, F, to be provided to mass, m, to execute circular motion. Two experimental conditions were measured using 1) a simple pendulum and 2) a rotating table. To acquire data regarding force, period, and velocity of the experimental setups a force sensor and photogate motion sensor were employed. The data was then analyzed graphically […]
