The students should
- With the aid of a pulley deflect a weight (force) and measure
the resultant force Fr acting on the
mounting of the pulley.
- Change the angle α between the weight (force)
Fg and the deflected force
F1 and once again determine the resultant
In a supplementary problem the students who are familiar with
the trigonometric functions should calculate the resultant force
Fr using F1,
Fg and the angle α.
The protractor sheet (circle with angular divisions) which is
required for the evaluation is provided as a master which can be
copied. The xerox copies should be given to the students before
they begin the experiment.
- Real stand material for an esecially stable and safe setup
- Student-suitable experiment descriptions with reports available
