### Vector Balancing Copied from Austin^{[1]}[edit]

- The objective of this experiment is to observe the balancing forces behind the vectors formed by a 3 4 5 triangle using three weight holders on a vector table.
- Experimental Steps
- First set two weight holders 90 degrees apart
- Place 250g at 0 degrees, 200g at unknown, and 150g at 90degrees respectively on each weight holder
- Experiment by moving the third weight until the vectors have balanced and the ring is centered

- Experimental Steps

### [edit]

- Measure the largest unknown angle on your vector table
- Divide actual angle measurement by the difference between actual and measured angle to determine error percentage

- Results
- We found our largest angle to be 144 degrees and calculated the actual angle to be 143 degrees, resulting in a .7% error
