Force Table (Combination and resolution of forces)


Code Number: P060910_EU

Brand: AELAB


The purpose of this experiment is to use the force table to experimentally determine the force that balances two other forces. This result is checked by adding the two forces using their horizontal and vertical vector components, and by graphically adding the force vectors.

- +

Force Table is used to physically demonstrate the addition of vectors using the concept of equilibrium (net force is zero). The vectors are forces supplied by the weight of masses that hang over pulleys. Masses hanging over pulleys placed at given angles are balanced by another mass over a pulley at another angle.
