Efficiency of a motor
A student investigated the efficiency of a motor using the equipment shown below:
Key points:
The motor is used to lift a weight of 2.5N a height of 2.0m
He measured the speed at which the weight was lifted and calculated the efficiency of the energy transfer.
He repeated the experiment to gain two sets of data.
The student ensure that the height lifted is the same each time. What type of variable is this? *
