Circular motion can be demonstrated with conical pendulum conical pendulum is an extension of simple pendulum in which the bob, instead of moving back and forth, moves at a constant speed.
Vibrational motion properties of periodic motion pendulum motion motion of a mass on a spring the gravity force is highly predictable it is always in the same direction (down) and always of the same magnitude - mass98 n/kg the tension force is considerably less predictable both its direction. Lab 5: circular motion and the pendulum 4 fill in the missing parts of the program let the bob have a mass of 01 kg let the spring have a relaxed length (l0) of 05 m and a stiffness of 20 n/mset the initial a location of the bob so that the spring is relaxed and it makes an angle of.
Pendulum like you might expect to find in a clock – the pendulum bob will be moving in a circular arc with a back and forth motion in a plane the othe r is a conical pendulum which involves a pendulum bob.
Force directed to the centre of the circular motion in keeping the object in the circular path, the force is known as the centripetal force ìn this experiment, the rubber bung is attached to one end of the string to perform the circular motion. Force and acceleration in circular motion introduction acceleration is the time rate of change of velocity since velocity is a vector, it can change in two ways: its magnitude can change and its direction can change. 1 sketch the f c setup label the radius, f c, mass m, reference washer, mass holder, m 2 measure the radius with the reference washer at its desired position hang a 500 g mass on the f c set up this mass represents a force f c = mv 2 /r let g = 10m/s 2 such that a 500 g mass has a weight f c equal to 05 n 3 put your goggles on now whirl and time the stopper for 10 revs in a.
Lab 5: circular motion physics 193 fall 2006 1 i introduction the lab today involves the analysis of objects that are moving in a circle newton’s second law as applied to circular motion can be used to solve a problem in the form of an experiment 1—circular motion and the pendulum equipment: a pendulum, a spring scale. A vibrating object is wiggling about a fixed position like the mass on a spring in the animation at the right, a vibrating object is moving over the same path over the course of time its motion repeats itself over and over again.
