In this lab, the effects of an object rolling down a ramp without slipping were studied and the role of friction on an objects velocity was witnessed. This was accomplished by rolling three objects, a hoop, a sphere, and a disk down a ramp while taking measurements with a Pasco motion sensor and special data acquisition software.
The length and change in height of the ramp were measured with a meter stick and used with basic trigonometry to determine ϴ, the ramps angle. Then the motion sensor was adjusted and set to wide beam mode with a pulse rate of 50 Hz. Next, a box was placed at the bottom of the ramp to stop the object. Three objects were then rolled down the ramp, a sphere (billiard ball), a hoop, and a disk, and measurement were taken for each of them.

Analysis and Conclusion
The obtained measurements were used to calculate acm, and were used for further analysis; these values can be seen in Table 1, below.
Table 1. Data Obtained for Each Object Object | ti (s) | tf (s) | vf (m/s) | xi (m) | xf (m) | a (m/s2) | Sphere | 0.6948 | 1.4823 | 1.11 | 0.241 | 0.8335 | 0.966 | Hoop | 0.855 | 2.1665 | 1.36 | 0.117 | 0.993 | 0.674 | Disk | 0.5937 | 1.7245 | 1.38 | 0.123 | 1.0215 | 0.887 |

Using the values obtained for a and Equation 1 from the lab manual, k was calculated for each object and then compared to the given k values for each to determine the percentage error, these calculations can be seen below.
k= gsinθacm-1 k=9.8sin8.050.966-1 k=0.421
% error= 0.421-0.40.4×100=5.25%

Hoop k=9.8sin8.050.674-1 k=1.04
% error= 1.04-1.01.0×100=4%

Disk k=9.8sin8.050.887-1 k=0.547
% error= 0.547-0.50.5×100=9.4%
Next, ∆x and h were calculated using the values from Table 1 and the equations below, these values for each object can be seen in Table 2.
h= ∆xsinθ
Table 2. ∆x and h Values for Each Object Object | ∆x | h | Sphere | 0.5925 | 0.083 | Hoop | 0.876 | 0.123 | Disk | 0.8985 | 0.126 |

The values for h from Table 2 and the values for v from Table 1 were then inserted into Equation 4 from the lab manual to determine k for each object, as before they were compared with the given k values to obtain a percentage error, these calculation can be seen below.
k= 2ghvcm2-1 k= 29.80.0831.112-1 k=0.32 % error= 0.32-0.40.4×100=20%

Hoop k= 29.80.1231.362-1 k=0.30 % error= 0.30-1.01.0×100=70%

Disk k= 29.80.1261.382-1 k=0.297 % error= 0.297-0.50.5×100=40.6%
Based on the percentage errors calculated above using both the Equation 1 method and the Equation 4 method to determine k, it appears that the Equation 1 method is more accurate. The percentage errors calculated for the Equation 1 method are much lower than those calculated for the Equation 4 method. This is likely due to the fact that there are more calculations involved in using Equation 4 than there is in using Equation 1. There is more rounding involved in the calculations for the necessary values, ∆x and h, needed to be plugged in to determine k in Equation 4 so there is likely to be more error, which in this case there was. As air drag and friction tend to slow an object down thus reducing acm and vcm, k is found to increase; this trend was also noticed in our results. It was noticed that the further away the mass was from the center of the object the faster the object would roll, thus velocity was increased by the distance of the mass from the center of the object. This is because rotational inertia is defined by the equation I = kmR2, meaning that the larger the radius, the greater the rotational inertia, which translates to a greater velocity. Finally, Equation 4 was derived from the energy equation, this derivation can be seen below. mgh = (1/2)mvcm2 + (1/2)Icmω2 ω = vcm/R
I = kmR2
Energy equation reduces to: gh = (1/2)(1+k)vcm2
Solve for k, giving us Eq. 4: k = (2gh/vcm2)-1…...

Danny Rolling

...Danny Rolling On August 20 1990, the university town of Gainesville, Florida was ranked as being the thirteenth best place to live in the United States by Money magazine. By the end of the week, American papers had renamed the town "Grisly Gainesville" after the bodies of five young students had been discovered brutally murdered and mutilated as they slept in their dorms. One weekend by one man transformed the excitement of the beginning school yeah into terror as hundreds of students fled, not knowing if and when he would strike again. A week later the media reported that the police had their number one suspect in custody, which created countless issues and ordeals for Edward Humphrey and his family. His case was simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Emotionally disturbed with a long history of strange behavior and violent emotional outbursts, he had seemed to police and the many witnesses to his antics, to be a prime suspect. With no evidence to hold him, the authorities somehow succeeded in stretching the limits of the law and had him locked away while they built their case around him. Before they could, the real killer was found. Danny Harold Rolling had moved on after his murders in Gainesville and was eventually arrested for armed robbery in Ocala, Florida. It would be some time before he would be linked to the homicides, and it would be longer still before Edward Humphrey's name would be cleared. Danny Rolling's story is a perfect example of how a......

Rolling Stones

...frame for the Rolling Stones is a task which requires envisioning a world before every memory one has ever made. “Timeless” would be an appropriate adjective, but “the 1950s” serves just as well. The band did not start as its line-up consists of today. Hardly, if any, bands have ever started like that. The Rolling Stones started as a small teen band named, “Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys”, with Mick Jagger singing and Keith Richards playing guitar. The music they played was all covers; they played songs which came from the musicians which they enjoyed. At this time, there were not any new movements arising which were primarily British. In this post-World War II era, the biggest new genres emerging were jazz, country/western, and R&ump;B (rhythm and bass). With these being primarily American genres, many adults in Britain did not want their children listening to this unfamiliar new music. However, the Rolling Stones were always a group attracted to the idea of rebellion. Such influential figures were Buddy Holly, Muddy Waters, and St.-Louis native Chuck Berry. One thing the Rolling Stones were always known for, their stage act, started in 1962. As “Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys” became “The Rollin’ Stones”, Mick Jagger, the front man of the group, slowly gained confidence. Stephen Davis in his 40-year span of the Rolling Stones entitled, “Old gods almost dead. The 40-Year Odyssey of the Rolling Stones”, describes Mick’s act as: “tossing his hair, rolling his eyes,......

The Rolling Stones

...The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. They were in the vanguard of the British Invasion of bands that became popular in the US in 1964–65. At first noted for their longish hair as much as their music, the Rolling Stones are identified with the youthful and rebellious counterculture of the 1960s. The band was instrumental in making blues a major part of rock and roll, and of changing the international focus of blues culture to the less sophisticated blues typified by Chess Records artists such as Muddy Waters, writer of "Rollin' Stone", the song after which the band is named. American music critic Robert Palmer said the Rolling Stones' "remarkable endurance" stems from being "rooted in traditional verities, in rhythm-and-blues and soul music" while "more ephemeral pop fashions have come and gone". The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones on guitar and harmonica, Ian Stewart on piano, Mick Jagger on lead vocals and harmonica, Keith Richards on guitar, Bill Wyman on bass and Charlie Watts on drums. Jones left the band less than a month prior to his death in 1969, having already been replaced by Mick Taylor, who left In 1975. Since then Ronnie Wood has been on guitar in tandem with Richards. Following Wyman's departure in 1993, Darryl Jones has been the main bassist. The band was first led by Jones, but after teaming as the band's songwriters, Jagger and Richards assumed defacto leadership. The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock...

Cold Rolling

...Cold rolling is a process by which the sheet metal or strip stock is introduced between rollers and then compressed and squeezed. The amount of strain introduced determines the hardness and other material properties of the finished product. The advantages of cold rolling are good dimensional accuracy and surface finish. Cold rolled sheet can be produced in various conditions such as skin-rolled, quarter hard, half hard, full hard depending on how much cold work has been performed. This cold working (hardness) is often called temper, although this has nothing to do withheat treatment temper. In skin rolling, the metal is reduced by 0.5 to 1% and results in a surface that is smooth and the yield point phenomenon--excessive stretching and wrinkling in subsequent operations, is eliminated. This makes the metal more ductile for further forming and stretching operations. Quarter Hard, Half Hard, Full Hard stock have higher amounts of reduction, upto 50%. This increases the yield point; grain orientation and material properties assume different properties along the grain orientation. However, while the yield point increases, ductility decreases. Quarter Hard material can be bent (perpendicular to the direction of rolling) on itself without fracturing. Half hard material can be bent 90º; full hard can be bent 45º. Thus, these materials can be used for in applications involving great amounts of bending and deformation, without fracturing. Annealing, in metallurgy and......

Not Without a Smile

...Not Without a Smile The novel “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley reveals the irony in human life through traces of the agonizing life of a miserable scientist, Victor Frankenstein. Ever since Victor was a little boy, he had always been interested in the topic of natural science. Through innovation and guidance, as well as great effort, Victor made the extraordinary discovery of the “elixir of life” where he brought life upon an inanimate being. Such discovery, however, only resulted in everlasting remorse and vengeance that followed Victor to his grave. Victor’s smile left on his motionless body answered many questions proposed throughout the story, yet more questions were left unanswered through the medium of irony. The smile that irradiates from Victor’s cold body shows a sense of satisfaction, but also a sense of regret as he was not able to speak his last words, which emits a sense of irony. The satisfaction yet remorseful smile left on the lips of Victor shadows the ironic behavior throughout the story. It is through these ironies that the story uncovers the ironic events that challenge us every day. The last emotion left on the face of Victor Frankenstein displayed the satisfaction that Victor had longed for. Since the murder of his loved ones by the monster, Victor had only been feeling miserable, guilty and above all, ferocious. After learning that the monster was the murderer of his youngest brother William, Victor narrated that, “no one can conceive the......

Artical Review Cold Rolling

...Cold Rolling Jeffry S. Asher DT1410 Unit 4 Assignment 2 ITT Technical Institute January 18, 2016 Cold rolling is a metal forming process in which the shape and the structure of steel are altered through drawing, extruding, hammering, pressing, rolling, spinning, and stretching at temperatures below the steel's recrystallization point, usually room temperature. These processes result in changes to the metal's composition which permanently increases its hardness and tensile strength, and improve the surface finish, but decrease ductility and impact resistance. After hot rolling, many steel products undergo a further processing in the cold state. This stage of processing may not necessarily alter the shape of the steel, but it does reduce its thickness and significantly improve its performance characteristics. Hot rolled coil is commonly known as cold rolled, also known as cold reduced. Cold rolling is a process by which the sheet metal or strip stock is introduced between rollers and then compressed and squeezed.

The Influence and Legacy of the Rolling Stones and the Beatles

...The Influence and Legacy Of The Rolling Stones And The Beatles By: Greg Johnston The history of rock and roll music has had many influential and popular bands. Back in the early days when rock and roll music was searching for an identity, along came two unique bands that would change the face of rock and roll music. The Rolling Stones and The Beatles had a uniqueness that was not found in other bands at the time, by fusing blues and rock music into a new sound. With their contrasting style of music and each band having a huge following, they changed the landscape of the music industry forever. And that started the debate of which one was a better band, but this is not a debate on which band was better, but a discussion on their influence, similarities and their differences. The Rolling Stones when they first started, in an effort to set them apart they were marketed as a wilder and crazier band, with a raunchy and rebellious appearance. Compared to The Beatles and their boy next door image. The Rolling Stones influenced music by covering obscure blues songs and by acting as a bridge connecting the pop youth of the day with blues music developing a different style of rhythm and blues music. The Beatles had such an impact on popular music that they set a new standard, and gave a new popularity to rock and roll music while also giving a new sound to the music industry. Both of these iconic rock and roll bands originated in England in the 1960’s. First came......

Cig Rolling

...Lights, make and produce our own pack of very similar cigarettes? Herein lies the solution; roll your own cigarettes. Most people shy away from such an idea claiming that they would never know where to start, or have no idea where they would buy the equipment, but on contrary the first steps to this new lifestyle are very easy, and the tools needed are readily available. The benefits of rolling your own cigarettes are numerous. First off, its inexpensive. GS Hammack, a man who writes for a website called, said that “smokers that are looking for an immediate saving will find that they can reduce the price of a pack of cigarettes from around $4.50 (in the Dallas Texas area) down to around $1.25, or maybe even a little less”. Another benefit is that, believe it or not, rolled cigarettes are more healthy for you than a regular pack of cigarettes. The bags that the tobacco come in are additive-free, which means that the rat poison and lip stick that you always hear about on bad cigarette commercials will not be included in your purchase. For any avid cigarette smoker, “rolling your own” is the way to go. There are three main things that are needed before we begin. They are the tobacco, the papers to roll the tobacco in, and of course, a lighter. So let us start with the first item on our list, the tobacco. Buying a large bag of tobacco will cost you around $20-$30 which may seem expensive at first, but in the long run you will find that you save tons of......
