Experiment 15: Moment of Inertia – Rotational and Translational Kinetic Energy Question: Derive the above statement that E t /E s = 0.71 KE s = KE t + KE r = (1/2)mv 2 + (1/2)Iω 2 Using I = (2/5)mr 2 and ω = v/r, KE s = KE t + KE r = (1/2)mv 2 + (1/2)[(2/5)mr 2 ](v/r) 2 = (1/2)mv 2 + (1/2)[(2/5)mv 2 ] = (1/2)mv 2 + (2/10)mv 2 = (5/10)mv 2 + (2/10)mv 2 = (7/5)(1/2)mv 2 E s = (7/5)E t E t /E s = (5/7) = 0.71 Table I shows the x displacement range traveled by the ball in projectile motion, the average of the values, the measured value of y, the exit muzzle velocity, and the measured value of h.
