Aim:

Determine the acceleration of an object undergoing uniform circular motion.


Use position, velocity, acceleration, and force as vector quantities.
Use forces to make quantitative predictions for objects in circular motion
Hypothesis:
If the velocity of the object is increased enough, the mass and weight will cancel
out and remain balanced.
Materials:

Plastic Tubing
Tape
Stopwatch
String
Mass
Rubber Band
Washers

Discussion:
We were supposed to accurately measure the revolutions per minute whilst the
mass and weight are in equilibrium. We were able to measure the last revolution
to measure 23cm in length after we stopped the stopwatch and carefully
measured.
Conclusion:
My Hypothesis was correct this is because that the data supplied indicates that
the hypothesis is true. I learnt that in circular motion that the object in circular
motion has an inward force towards the centre, this is called centripetal force.
