Lab # 3 Capacitance

Part 1:

Aim: To test the equation for capacitance of a Pasco parallel plate capacitor with air gap.

Materials: Aluminum foil, Beam Balance, Meter Stick

Sketch:

Procedure: The capacitance is measured using a multimeter as a function of the plate separation.

Measurements begin with plates as close as possible to the nearest mm. Then the plate separation

is increased by one mm, and the capacitance value is read for each separation up to15 data

points.

Raw Data:

Mass of Ball and Pendulum M= 0.3275 kg 0.0002kg

Mass of Ball m=0.0661 kg 0.0002kg

Analysis:

1. Since

the average , is 2.37631 m/s. The error in measurement of ball velocity will not exceed

10% using this apparatus. Therefore, the error in the measurement is 0.237631 m/s.

= 2.37631

2. During the collision of the ball and the pendulum bob, momentum was conserved but

energy was not since this was an inelastic collision, which means some energy was lost

upon impact to heat or friction. If energy was conserved, all the PE=KE.

= 0.1862 J

Therefore 0.14853 J or 0.79769*KE was lost.

3. The angle reached by the pendulum change if the ball is not caught by the pendulum

would be smaller since the collision now is less inelastic; therefore the energy during the

collision is conserved. The ball would have some velocity or kinetic energy as is bounces

off the pendulum and therefore less of the initial KE is transferred to the PE of the

pendulum.

Discussion of Results and Conclusions: The experiment demonstrated that the velocity of a

projectile can be calculated from the swing of the pendulum to be is 2.376310.237631 m/s. We

can do this since the collision between ball and catcher is inelastic and momentum is conserved

and energy is not conserved. Energy was lost due to friction upon impact and the kinetic energy

that was transferred was converted into potential energy which was indicated by the height of the

pendulum swing.

Experiment #2: Predicting the Horizontal Distance of a Projectile

Aim: To use the value of v

b

, as measured in the previous experiment to predict the horizontal

range of the projectile ball launched with an initial horizontal velocity v

b

.

Materials: Projectile Launcher Kit, Carbon Paper, Plumb Bob, White Paper, Meter Stick

Sketch:

minus the pendulum arm.

Procedure: The pendulum arm was removed and the ball was placed into the launcher and

locked it to the same range as used in the previous experiment (short range). One shot was fired

and a piece of carbon paper was placed on top of the white paper and tape it down at the location

the ball struck the ground. At least 10 shots were fired and the vertical distance y from the

bottom of the ball as it leaves the barrel to the floor was measured and the horizontal distance

traveled for each shot x was measured. Calculate the average distance was calculated with

uncertainty.

Raw Data:

Average Horizontal Distance = 0.94970.0185 m

Analysis:

1. The horizontal distance traveled by the projectile can be calculated using the equations

From

.

1. The predicted horizontal distance traveled by the projectile can be calculated using the

equation

= 1.06971 m.

The theoretical uncertainty is 10% of this measurement therefore 1.0691 0.10691 m.

The average distance traveled by the projectile was 0.94970.0185 m. When accounting

for the max error in distance travelled, the projectile landed between the range 0.9312 m

to 0.9682 m and when accounting for the max error in theoretical distance travelled, the

projectile could travel 0.96228 m to 1.17601 m, therefore the experimentally found

landing position is within the range of theoretical landing positions within the uncertainty

of the experiment.

Discussion of Results and Conclusions: The experiment demonstrated that the value of v

b

measured in the previous experiment could be used to predict the horizontal range of the

projectile ball launched with an initial horizontal velocity v

b

within the uncertainty of the

experiment based of kinematic equations. The causes for uncertainty in position of projectiles

landing can be due to air resistance or the uncertainty of the machine set up which is accounted

for with the 10% uncertainty of the measurement.
