INTRODUCTION

In the our world, almost people were know the

word called Vector. Vector is quantity that has
magnitude(size),direction, and represented by arrow.
For example, force, velocity, acceleration, are
vector quantity. Also, it very essential for physics
because it can solve many issue of physic. For the
resultant vector, equivalent vector which have the
same size and direction in angle regarding to the x-
axis,we can use various process of vector such as
adding vector if its has the same direction,
subtracting vector if its has opposite directions. In
addition, we can use parallelogram rule to find the
resultant if two vectors didnt equal in size and
direction, also if two vectors that stay at right
angles to each other (perpendicular) we can use
Pythagorean Theorem. For equivalent vector to find
direction of vector we can use it by measure their
angle to x-axis and deduct its result by 360 degree.
According to the experiment, our class will use
table force to find to resultant and equivalence
vector of three force(hanging masses) that hang on
pulleys at three spot around the edge of the force
table and each hanging masses contain one hundred
gram of metal. Furthermore, we will use two method of
vector which are parallelogram and polygon technique
for a other result and calculate the change of
percent in two results to be more accurate.

OBJECTIVE

I. To understand how to find the equilibrant of

magnitude and direction of vector.
II. To know the difference between two forces and
three forces.
III. To understand how to find the resultant of the
forces.
IV. To understand how to find the resultant and
equilibrant by using graphical method.
V. To know the difference of the result between
experimental result and graphical method result.

IV. Hanging Masses

SETUP
PROCEDURE
1. Prepares a force table, central ring, pulleys,
and hanging masses for the experiment.
2. Puts a 2 ropes to a pulleys and binds a pulley
with force table.
3. Binds the central ring with the rope and put it
at the center of the force table.
4. Binds hanging masses (100g) with the rope.
5. Moves the pulley along the circumference
(Direction) and increase/decrease the hanging
mass (Magnitude) to make the central ring floats
at the center.
6. Records the result in the table.
7. Repeats step 2-5 but changes to 3 ropes.
