2 Abstract In this laboratory experiment is to better understand angular momentum. With the use of rotating apparatus, we are able to examine the motion of rotating bodies utilizing the principle of conservation of angular momentum. In order to do this lab we are going to have to use data from the previous lab, Inertia. Using the data from the previous lab we are able to determine angular momentum because it is equal the inertia multiplied it’s angular acceleration. In this lab we will be using many kinematic equations for linear rotational motion with constant acceleration, found on page 12-1 of the lab manual.
