For Lab 4, pleae review Chapter 6 in your textbook. This lab involves a roller coaster and its physics. This simulation can be downloaded.
In this simulation, an object traverses the “hills and valleys” of a frictionless roller coaster in the realm of zero air resistance.
You will be asked to find measurements and make calculations concerning total mechanical energy and whether it is conserved. Then you will then make some changes to the global air resistance for this simulation and answer the same questions as you did previously.
- All simulations can be downloaded here, this week’s file name is “Ball on Roller CSTR #4.ip”
- Fill in the blanks in the Lab Answer Sheet at the end of this lab. THIS LAB IS DUE AT THE END OF THE WEEK.
- Submit this Lab Answer Sheet when all of the labs are completed.
- These can be scanned and sent as pdf or picture files (e.g. tif, gif, etc.) or by any other method of your choice as long as the Answer Sheets are legible and translatable by Grantham University faculty.
Run the simulation and complete the data tables and fill in the blanks on the Lab 4 Answer Sheet.
