Addition and Resolution of Vectors The Force table


Question Description

Addition and Resolution of Vectors: The Force table

After doing the experiment according to the instructions given in lab, you will be responsible to turn in the following:

All data for vector addition III and Vector addition IV in the table page 83 must be typed, they can either be presented in a table or individually. All vector diagrams must have arrows specific to each direction.

Analytical: Individual steps for the mathematical work must be shown with calculations for the resultant, magnitude and angle. A simple diagram must be drawn either with a ruler and pencil, or on the computer.

Give the angle for the equilibrant as well.

Experimental: Give the magnitude and angle for the equilibrant. A diagram can be given showing the individual vectors and equilibrant, magnitude and angle. Again, use a compass, a ruler and pencil.

Graphical: Must be done on graph paper and to scale. They can also be done on the computer if you choose to do so. Remember, all individual vectors will be drawn head to tail, not all at the intersection between x & y axes.

Again, don't forget the arrows in all of your diagrams and the equilibrant, magnitude and angle.


Instructions below apply to vector additions III and IV:

You need to turn the following in:

For the mathematical part, you need to submit the following: Only the final answer for the resultant with it's angle and equilibrant with it's angle, all calculations were done in lab.. convert the final answer for the resultant to Newtons showing how the conversion was made.

For the experimental part: Show the experimental angle for the equilibrant. Must show individual vectors at the intersection between the x and y axes with arrows and where the equilibrant is located with the angle on the diagram. Remember we determined the magnitude of the equilibrant mathematically and you only determined the equilibrant angle.

For the graphical part: submit both diagrams to scale and head to tail with arrows. Connect the resultant graphically and measure it's length. Must convert the magnitude from cm to grams showing how,

Also extend the resultant along the same line and same magnitude, then record the magnitude of the equilibrant angle.

Addition and resolution of vector lab report


Physical, measurable quantities are classified as scalar and vector quantities. The vector physical,
a quantifiable amount has both magnitude and direction while physical, measurable scalar
quantity has magnitude only. Vectors quantities cannot be added arithmetically live the addition
of scalar quantities since the vector quantity has both magnitude and direction. Force table
method is used to find the resultant vector addition which was demonstrated in this laboratory
experiment. The force table method of addition of vectors can be graphically or analytically.
Experimentally and mathematically were used to illustrate the force table method of resolution of
vectors for this experiment. The objective of this experiment was to determine the resultant of a
vector using an experimental technique, analytical approach, and graphically method. Analytical
methods need the use of the calculus method to obtain the magnitude and direction of the forces.
The bubble level was used to check if the force table is horizontal.
Two masses were placed at 0°and 90° with weight hangers of 200g and 150g respectively. The
masses were recorded in the table below as vector addition three.
