This experiment familiarizes the student with Capstone, Graph match, and the motion sensors. Also, the basic aspects of position, velocity, and acceleration.

Relationships between position, velocity, acceleration, and time are studied. This lab focuses on the one dimensional case where each quantity can be considered as a scalar. Acceleration is taken to be constant while the mass varies.

Newton's 1st Law is investigated. The apparatus consists of a force table, and a set of movable pulleys with weights. A string is attached to a small ring at the top of the table which is centered with a pin.

This experiment's purpose is to verify the concepts of potential energy and conservation of energyfor the the uniform gravitational field and for an ideal Hooke's Law spring.

Students will investigate the principle of momentum conservation by studying collisions in one dimension using two bodies/ gliders. Energy conservation will also be explored by analyzing elastic and inelastic collisions.

In this experiment students measure the speed of a projectile by a kinematic method and also by the use of a ballistic pendulum. The latter method illustrates the use of conservation of energy and momentum.

Students measure the period of a revolving weight and use the information to calculate angular velocity and compare the centripetal force with the force of gravity.

To investigate the relationship between torque, moment of inertia, and angular acceleration for a human arm. Bicep force vs mass, triceps extension, and rotational inertia of the forearm will be observed.

In this experiment, free and forced oscillations of a string are studied. The free oscillations of a string fixed at both ends are investigated by driving the string very weakly with a force that varies sinusoidally with time. It will be assumed that the coupling is so weak that the free vibrations are unaffected by the driving force. The forced vibrations of a string fixed at one end and driven at the other end are also studied.
