Research Question:

Does the speed or velocity of the car change due to the magnetic field present?

Background information:

We know that s=1/2(u+v)t where, v= velocity/speed (m/s), d= displacement (m), t= time (s). u=initial velocity (m/s)

When an object moves, it often undergoes changes in speed and motion. The equation used above is an equation of motion, In that specific equation, acceleration is constant acceleration due to gravity. The area of the graph on this equation shows us the rate of change of displacement.

Aim:

To prove that the time taken for the car to reach the end point is more with the magnet present compared to the car without the magnet.

Hypothesis:

My hypothesis is that the time taken for the car with the magnet will*…show more content…*

The systematic errors are the ones that come up due the errors made by me while taking the measurements which are represented on the graphs. Also, there might be a delay in the time taken as my reaction time and the time taken by the car could differ since the time taken is shorter than my reaction time and the error is bigger in comparison. Along with that, the deviations caused by the magnet and the aluminium strip causes a major difference in the actual time taken compared to the time calculated.

However, the experiment was quite successful despite the errors that occurred. The results obtained are mostly consistent and support the hypothesis stated at the start of the experiment. The time taken for the car with the magnet will take more time to travel the distance on the aluminium strip compared to the car on the plastic strip as the magnet will cause friction and deviations on the path.

More amount of trials and precision and a better range of distances could have been more accurate and constant which would lead to a better result. I could have also used better instruments to make it more efficient and realistic. Along with that, maybe a change of variables could help come to more of an accurate decision and prove the hypothesis

654 Words | 3 PagesOur lab results on all three data table experiments had a percent error less than 5 percent. When examining these results I can be almost certain it was not systematic error due to the fact that a major percent error was not detected on every trial that was run in each of the three tables. With there being some percent error there is the possibility for random error which are from unknown factors, which could come from impact of outside forces like the air track interfering with the acceleration of the cart. Beings that this was the first lab for my lab partners and I were working there was room for slight personal errors with our use of the computer program as well as the lab equipment. How does the acceleration in Data Table 2 compare with that of Data Table 1?

2014 Words | 9 PagesA question that arose after this experiment was conducted is, how would the results differ if the force applied when swinging the object was kept the exact same? The experiment could be furthered by increasing the number of trials for more accurate results. Every experiment has errors that affect the accuracy of the results. In the experiment conducted, the three things that could be improved are the force with which all three objects were swung, the radius of the string (for all three objects) and pressing the stop watch without any delays or advances. To finally conclude, the trend observed as part of this experiment was that as the mass increases, the tangential velocity decreases and this also proves the hypothesis correct.

Newton’s Second Law of Motion states that the acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object. This relates to the roller coaster that we made in class because it is an unbalanced force. It is able to change the roller coaster's motion and pull it uphill. When

The force required to keep a body moving in a circle is F=m v^2/r (5) With radius r and mass m. The required centripetal force is provided by the force exerted on the electron by the negative field m v^2/r=Bev or m v/r=eB

1016 Words | 5 PagesBy whatever amount the net force acting on the cart changes, I believe its acceleration will change proportionally. Because the relationship is linear, the results on the graph will be linear. This can be shown mathematically as: a ∝ F, or in words “a is proportional to F”. Therefore, a=kF, which can be rearranged to get F=(1/k)a. We know that F=ma where the mass is the cart plus the weights with friction considered, and we know that weight=mass x gravitational field strength.

However, in determining the neutralization time by speculating the change in color, one must be critical and careful enough to get accurate and precise data. In conducting this experiment, some possible errors affect the accuracy of the data. The first possible source of error encountered is in the miscalculation in preparing the titrant. Excess or lesser amounts of 1.00 M NaOH can lead to inappropriate standardization.
