The idea of centripetal force was the main objective to understand during this lab. A centripetal force is a force that causes an object to shift in a circular pathway and whenever an object is moving in a circular path it’s accelerating because the velocity is constantly changing the direction. This centripetal force is always directed towards the center, and without this force it would shift in a straight line motion. From the swinging of the rope exercise I learned a few important concepts when it comes to the relationship between the rubber stopper and the hanging mass. The smaller the mass, the smaller the centripetal force. The smaller the velocity, the less centripetal force you will have to apply. If the rope was let go, the object in this case the rubber stopper will no long be in a circular motion it will be free to fly off on a tangent. There are a few issues I’ve would of wanted to solve in order to retrieve more accurate data. One was being to redo some trials to make our date look more correct. The clock stopping should be more accurate, there were a number of times where it seemed I was spinning longer then amount of time required.
