Abstract—. Isaac Newton, an English physicist and mathematician, established three physicals laws that lays out the foundations for classical mechanics. These laws are known as Newton’s Laws of Motion. They describe the relationship between an object or body and the forces acting upon it. These laws first appeared in Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica (Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy) which was published in 1687. Newton’s laws are only applicable in an inertial reference frame and they are: the law of inertia, law of mass, acceleration and force, and the law of action-reaction. The second law of motion is the law that states how to calculate the force. It shows the relationship between the force, mass, and acceleration of a certain body.

Keywords—mass; acceleration; net force; pulley; dynamics cart Introduction

The experiment aims to verify Newton’s second law which presents the relationship between the net force, mass, and acceleration. It can be represented as F = ma. According to Newton’s second law, the net force should be equal to the product of the total mass and its acceleration. The experiment will employ the use of a dynamics cart, a pulley, and a hanging mass along a dynamics cart track. This experiment will verify if the weight of the hanging mass (m2g) is equivalent to the net force on the entire system when friction is overlooked.

Lacsamana De La Salle University 2401 Taft Avenue, Manila, Philippines Abstract: The experiment is entitled the gravitational experiment as what Galileo discovered during his time. The purpose of this was to prove that the acceleration at free-fall of an object is the same as the acceleration of an object sliding down in an inclined surface. The procedure involved changing of different angles of the inclined plane holding the mass of the cart and the distance travelled constant considering the average time with 10 trials. The results showed that the acceleration was directly proportional to the angle. Introduction During the 17th century, a lot of studies are being conducted to study motion.

Solution to Time Dependent Schrodinger Equation: method of separation of variables [6] TDSE: EΨ(t,x)= (〖-ħ〗^2/2m d^2/(dx^2 ) + U(x))Ψ(t,x)-→ EΨ(t,x) = ĤΨ The potential energy in the Hamiltonian is time independent: U = U(x). Assuming: Ψ(t,x) = Ψ(x)f(t) So TDSE is re-written as: iħΨ(x) df(t)/dt = 〖-ħ〗^2/2m (d^2 Ψ(x))/(dx^2 ) f(t)+ UΨ(x)f(t) Multiply through by (1/Ψ(x)f(t)) to make the R.H.S exclusively t-dependent and the L.H.S exclusively x-dependent TDSE is re-written as: iħ 1/(f(t))

## What Is The Relationship Between Mass And Tangential Velocity

The uncertainty is the numerical value of ranges of the result. There are three measuring instruments which require uncertainty. The weighing scale and the stop watch are digital devices and their uncertainties are the same as the smallest division.

## Theories Of Quantum Mechanics

1362 Words | 6 PagesWork of Heisenberg was further developed by Born and Jordan, which was a birth of matrix mechanics. Soon after emergence of a Schrodinger’s equation, equivalence of these two forms was proven. Final formation of a quantum mechanics as a theory is due to work of Heisenberg of 1927 in which the principle, claiming that any physical system cannot be in a state where coordinates of its center of mass and an impulse are precise values at the same time, was formulated. This is now called "Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle". The indeterminacy relation establishes that concepts of coordinate and an impulse in the classical sense cannot be applied to microscopic objects.

## Essay On String Theory

1463 Words | 6 PagesIn this essay, I am going to describe and explain the basic principles in string theory. String theory is a theoretical framework in which particles are replaced by strings. The strings are like ordinary particles with mass, charge but other properties are determined by the vibrational state of the string and they are only in one dimension. String theory originated from the Kaluza-Klein theory in 1921. In 1970 the official string theory is formulated.

## Fluid And Static Friction

1068 Words | 5 PagesMotion is the change in position over time against a reference point, and is the procedure of an object changing place or position. Sir Isaac Newton, a famous mathematician and scientist, had created three laws based on motion. The first law was based on inertia, the tendency of an object to resist any change in motion, which states, “Objects at rest, stay at rest, unless acted upon by a force,” and, “Objects in motion, stay in motion, unless acted upon by a force.” This law explains that if an object were to travel at a constant speed in the same direction, it would continue to do this until it is pulled or pushed by something. If we think about a gravity-free zone, such as space, we could picture throwing a rock out into outer space. And this marble would continue to go at the same speed in the same direction unless there is a force, a push or pull, acting upon by it, making it either slow down, speed up, or just change it’s direction.

## Thermal Energy: The Law Of Conservation Of Energy

1091 Words | 5 PagesUpon the removal of the load or force, an object would return to its original size and shape. Mathematically, this can be expressed as F=kx, where F is the deforming force, x is the size of the deformation, and k is the spring constant. In this experiment, the spring constant of the plunger can be determined by applying force on the spring and recording the displacement of the spring plunger. When the force is plotted versus displacement, the slope of the resulting straight line is equal to the spring constant, k. To get the spring potential energy, the formula PEspring = ½ kx2. 2.
