Some of our results agree to the ordinary meaning of elasticity.
Because like the pingpong ball when we drop it first until a series of dropping
it, it’s height remains the same. Also with the golf ball and jackstone, after a
series of dropping it, it is near to its original height and the difference is not
big. While the marble after a series of dropping, it increases its height and
has a big difference to its first height.

Conclusion: A. Eventually a crack will reach a critical size. the closer the ball rebounds to its original height. and the structure will suddenly fracture. VI. B. square holes or sharp corners will lead to elevated local stresses where fatigue cracks can initiate. microscopic cracks will begin to form at the surface. 2. The magnitude of stretching or compressing the spring depends on the force applied or weight of the object. Fatigue occurs when a material is subjected to repeated loading and unloading. It simply means that the magnitude of stretching or compressing the spring is proportional to the force applied or weight of the object. the elongation also increases. or volume when the force that deformed it is removed. Round holes and smooth transitions or fillets are therefore important to increase the fatigue strength of the structure. For constant of the spring is the force needed to produce a unit elongation of the spring. The more elastic the material.V. Also it is the ability to regain its original size. If the loads are above a certain threshold. Bigger force constant means that spring is not easily elongated or compressed. form. Post laboratory Questions and Answers: 1. . Elasticity is the ability of a body to undergo temporary change. If the force is increased. It has a unit of n/m. Force constant is a measure of the stiffness of the spring. The shape of the structure will significantly affect the fatigue life.

The object will partially submerged.0784N = 0 Alcohol: Oil: W = 0.0784N = 0 0.W = W1 – W2 Water: W = 0. Because of the salt in the sea it is easier to swim in the sea. buoyant force is less than its weight. If the object is less dense than the liquid. 2.784N – 0. The sea also has currents. The salt helps make the body more buoyant and helps make it easier to swim. Conclusion: If the density of the object is equal to the density of the liquid. The object will float.784N – 0. buoyant force is greater than its weight. both strong and weak that helps push the body along so you do not have to use as much physical energy to propell yourself. If the density of the object is greater to the density of the liquid. buoyant force is equal to the weight of the object. Post-Laboratory Questions and Answers: 1. the object will partially submerged.
