Phy - Lab Relationship Between Angle and Acc

Extracts from this document...


Lab Report - Relationship between Angle and Acceleration Aim To get the gravitational acceleration by a slope board and a ticker tape. Hypothesis When the angle of the board gets 90, then the acceleration reaches at 9.81m/s2 which is the speed of the gravitational acceleration. Apparatus A slope board, ticker tape, a car, and a tractor. Method 1. Put the board on a table or something to put over. 2. Measure the angle(starts from 1 degree, 11 degree, 22 degree, 33 degree, and 44 degree) 3. For each angle, place the ticker tape on the top of the board, and let the car go from a ticker tape as long as possible. ...read more.


7. From the Time-Velocity graphs, get a gradient (Acceleration) of each graph and make a final table for an Angle-Acceleration graph. 8. At the final graph, the acceleration at 90 degree will be presented.

My final graph is not closer to the original gravitational acceleration. I may say my hypothesis is not wrong, because it's from the error such as timing error, uncertainties error in timing or angle. I think the most affected reason is that the friction on the board when the car moves. And also I was trying to do the experiment for every 11 degrees if I could. However, it was nearly impossible to do when the angle gets over 50. If I were able to measure every 11 degrees then my final result would be closer to the value that should it be (9.81m/s2) ?? ?? ?? ?? HanSol Shin 11A IB Physics SL - 1 - ...read more.

Be sure to then carefully obtain the necessary ticker timer tape and safely store it for further analysis (I will be covering what can be obtained from the information on the tape in the Analyzing Results section).

    In fact we can calculate the percentage error for each one by finding the difference between our value and the theoretical value, then dividing by the theoretical value and multiplying by 100. For 0.5m --> (9.81-8.82)/9.81*100=10.1% For 1.0m --> (9.81-9.24)/9.81*100=5.81% For 1.5m --> (9.81-9.52)/9.81*100=2.96% For 2.0m --> (9.81-9.58)/9.81*100=2.34% We can

    Light-coloured surfaces are good reflectors of radiation which is why you wear light colours during the summer. Most of the energy radiated by a body is done so at a specific wavelength that is determined by the temperature of a body.
