1) This graph and its table below showed the resultant forces which were achieved when the test on the relationship between deflection (Y) and the spacing achieved (L3) using a load of my choice which was 2.5kg (constant). The scientific instruments used in the lab for this experiment were a digital gauge to measure the final beam deflection and also a hanger to freelance the weight. Beam depth (d) of 0.0063 m. A prediction was made that this beam would indeed prove to be one with a high deflection point due to its depth. Gradient is identical to deflection.

The graph below labelled (1/d3 ) and its graph are used to show the relationship between the deflection (y) and the Depth (d) of 0.007900 m, on the spacing used will remain a constant to enable a versatile range of results to be obtained. We use the same instruments from the previous test. The only variables we shall change are the Depth (d) but the Weight (w). We shall be recording the Deflection (y) alongside the reciprocal of depth (1/d3). This test showed indeed that the trend did not remain versatile and indeed a trend was discovered with reasonable data entry. The...
