Errors and Uncertainties - Lab Report
Errors and Uncertainties - Lab Report
Physics being an experimental science, we sought to learn how to prepare a lab and perform as a team accounting for errors and uncertainties and to reduce them. We gathered values for volume using Micrometer, gathered information on acceleration, velocity, and created a histogram using a PASCO motion sensor. A jumping experiment was also performed with a human and the motion sensor. Our main goal was to test the effects of human error and eliminating mechanical error.

How to use axions to shine light through walls
How to use axions to shine light through walls
The axion is a hypothetical particle, introduced by the Peccei-Quinn theory in 1977 as a solution to the strong CP problem in quantum chromodynamics. The axion, if it exists, must have a very small mass, and must be very weakly interacting with baryonic matter, giving it the abbreviation WISP (Weakly Interacting Sub-ev Particle). The predicted attributes of the axion would give it the ability to pass directly through an opaque wall without obstruction, and this is how the ALPS experiment (Any Light Particle Search) at DESY in Hamburg is exploring the possibility of their existence. In this report, we will use matrix methods to reproduce the relationship between axion mass and axion coupling as published by the ALPS experiment \autocite{Ehret, K. et al (2010). New ALPS results on hidden-sector lightweights} in 2010, using their conversion probability to plot the result. Note that all equations, unless otherwise stated, are in natural units ($c=1$, $\hbar = 1$).

The Mechanics of a Spiral Water Pump
The Mechanics of a Spiral Water Pump
The fundamental necessity for water is a widespread issue affecting many communities across the globe. In this project, our team sought to provide an innovative solution to this problem for a small community with access to a relatively close source of flowing water. Resultant flow rate of water was calculated to be 0.498 L/min. Stress and strain analysis on individual subsections of the system were as follows: -44.2 MPa for bending moment in the rod; -7.04 MPa for shear stresses in the rod of the axis; -8.88E-5 for shear strain in the rod ; -1.11 MPa and .429 MPa of shear stresses in the L brackets; -0.123 MPa for radial stress of spiral, -0.422 MPa for hoop stress of spiral, -2.10 MPa for bending moment of spiral, and -0.176 MPa for the maximum shear stress of the spiral pump on the rotating wheel. The focus of the design remained fixated on water acquisition; however, further additions can be made for water purification.
