The design of bridges, forces, and elasticity.
The Graphical Method and is led on diagram paper with four quadrants and the vector A beginning at (x, y) = (0, 0) at the inside of the chart. Mind must be taken from the charts to represent the distances and angles as accurately as possible.
Vectors may be included scientifically, which is the favored method since it does not oblige the making of exact drawings and does not include the human mistakes intrinsic in the estimations made on them. This method comprises of discovering the x and y parts of every vector, and including their particulars segments.
The equation is the start point in designing static structures. The experimental setup sought to analyze two force vector dimensions. Statics can be referred to as the resultant force when an object is stationary. The session will involve analyzing torque properties of materials. A translation equilibrium, which is a condition of vector sum of forces as zero
Pulley #1 was set at 300 and added 50grams to the weight pan. Then pulley #2 was set at 1300 and added 100grams. T3 was experimentally determined which led to spring balancing. On achieving the translational equilibrium, mass and angle was recorded. Error inT3 was determined by adding 1g and 2g masses on the weight pan to the point where it was moving off the center. The pulley was carefully moved to the right in 1-degree angle increment and measured the error. The third error is found from averaging two changes.
The objectives were met effectively. Newton’s laws of motion were successfully applied in the experiment. From the results, the mass was 0.05kg with an error less than 5% error. The other components measured were subject to errors too which is slightly below 5%. The session led to an understanding of utilizing rulers, protractors, and mass offsets. The errors realized from the results are due to systemic inconsistencies. Minimizing on lapses obliges
