Students use a photogate and pulley system to determine the mathematical relationship between the acceleration of an Atwood’s machine, the difference between its two masses, and the sum of those two masses.
Students use a Smart Cart to determine the physical properties of a vertical mass and spring system that affect its period of oscillation, and then use their data to support a mathematical model relating period, mass, and spring...
Students use a 3-axis magnetic field sensor and the AC/DC electronics laboratory to determine how the strength of the magnetic field at the center of a current-carrying coil depends on the coil current and radius.
Students use the Smart Cart force sensor and tension protractors to demonstrate that the sum of the forces acting on an object in static translational equilibrium is equal to zero, and the sum of the torques acting on an object...
