  1. Practical Investigation

    DISSCUSSION & EVALUATION: Factors that also affect the period of a pendulum that are not investigated in this practical are the wind, the latitude of the pendulum, the force of push by the individual, the type of bob or string, whether the bob is swing in a straight line or

    be adjusted and set up next to the wall, the squash ball will be released from the top of the meter stick and as soon as it is ready to be released, the video is recorded and the ball is let to be dropped and bounced.

    shows presence of the systematic error. As the exact value of air resistance and friction forces were not regarded, the error could occur. Some mistakes and uncertainities are due to: * different types of balls, as each ball have different properties * different types of surface, as again, each have different properties * time of human

  2. Investigation " How the Temperature of a Squash Ball affects the Bounce

    Speed = 6cm 0.85s = 7.058823... I then rounded the number up to two decimal place which then gave me the final answer of 7.06cm/s. I did the same calculations for all of the results and collected the following results: Temperature of water (�C)

  1. Suspension Bridges. this extended essay is an investigation to study the variation in tension ...

    Also, as the length of the string tied between is increased, the tension in the string decreases. The intrinsic property of strings, such as the extent of deformation when under force determines the tension which it experiences. This is indicated by the strain value which has been subsequently calculated for

  2. Movement - modelling the height jumped by horses in the Olympics

    Therefore, height is proportional to velocity squared (v2). The following is how I will calculate the height the ball travelled. Working Out: Kinetic Energy (KE) = 1/2 mv2 Potential Energy (PE) = mgh KE converts to PE or the horse hits the wall 1/2 mv2 = mgh if 100% efficient 1/2 mv2 = mgh v2 = 2gh 2g

    The readings that the light sensor receives will show up on our laptops and will be the basis for our data that will be measured in the unit LUX. Averages for each distance will be calculated by applying a simple formula where all three trials are added up, before the
