Classical Circular Force with Predictions Lab (Lab)
This lab is a simplified version of the circular motion lab. In this lab, the radius and the mass of the stopper are fixed. The only thing that a student will be able to change is the number of washers. They will see how the number of stoppers affects the speed the object must travel in a circle to keep the masking tape at the right spot. Finally, they will make predictions based on the formula developed through this lab.
