Victoria Wood PHYS 221 – Section 1Experiment #9: Torque and Rotational MotionPartner: Shamsa
ResultsIn this experiment, we were able to measure the torque on a rigid object anddetermine the conditions necessary for static equilibrium to occur. By balancing themeter stick and hanging masses on each end, we were able to evaluate torque anddetermine uncertainties.
