Purpose: To determine the displacement between two assigned places in the school.
Materials: See lab
Procedure: See lab
Data: See attached sheet
Calculations: See attached sheet
Questions:
1. If a stop off at the main office was to be included in our path, the resultant would change because we would have to cover a bigger displacement to reach the main office from room 522; if we had initially started from room 607 and approached room 522 using the stairs by the north cafeteria.
2. See attached sheet
Conclusion:
This lab consisted of measuring your displacement from room 607 to room 522 using a meter stick. The tiles on the ground were used as an aid to efficiently measure each unique displacement along with each step in the staircase. After reaching room 522, all the displacements for North-South, East-West, and Up-Down were calculated in order to set up vectors and find the total displacement between the two rooms. The displacement between room 607 and 522 was 59.323 @ 28.2 degrees South of West and 2.32 degrees below the horizontal. In addition, this final answer may be somewhat incorrect if during the lab our group recorded some displacements to be smaller than what they actually were, making the resultant and/or displacement for some directions to be smaller than their actual values. On a side note, since we have determined the displacement between the two rooms, we can now compare the displacement values of using stairs to using an elevator to distinguish between the two displacements.Purpose: To determine the displacement between two assigned places in the school.
