Determine the force necessary to remove a piece of adhesive tape from a horizontal surface. Investigate the influence of relevant parameters.


I don't ask to solve it completely, just give me instructions, if you known ofc

I would hang weights on the tape and measure how much force it takes to pull the tape off a horizontal surface for different widths and lengths of tape. Measure the surface area of tape and obtain a force per unit area result.
But if you think about how tape fails, however, it is does not come unstuck immediately. Rather it peels off and how it does so will depend on where the weight is positioned. Investigate how long it takes to peel off for the same length of tape and different types of tape. Longer times would indicate stronger adhesive.
Look and see if there are any standard tests that industry uses to test how strong their glue is. You should be able to get some information from this.
