Section SLN: 7242S TA’s name: Part 3: Wooden block with one weight. Mass of the wooden block, mb = 0.122 kg Mass of the heavy weight 1, mw1 = 0.494 kg =====================================================================
Part 4: Statistical distribution of data.
The attached histogram has been created for the static / kinetic (select one)frictional force data. III. Data Analysis.
Part I: Determination of the coefficient of static friction
- Based on the data collected for the wooden block carrying two weights and sliding along the lab table the coefficient of static friction was determined as follows: (Show equation and sample calculation) fs = μs N where fs =Average frictional force = 7.889 N N = Total normal load = (0.122 + 0.494 + ...
