Bryan (Daejin) Kim PHY131L 3/7/07 - computer - laser-gate assembly - rotational motion apparatus - clamp - slotted weight set - small weight set - dial caliper - caliper jaws - plastic weight holder - small weight hanger Procedure First, we tested the computer to see that the laser-gate assembly works correctly with the computer. We then set up the apparatus and made basic measurements: mass of the cup. We tied the string to the pin in the biggest disk, and then rotated the disk until the string of the weight holder wrapped around the second biggest disk. We added enough amount of weight on the weight holder to make the disk rotate very slowly. After setting the number of data points on the computer, we recorded the rotational velocity of the disk. When we graphed rotational velocity vs. time, the slope turned out to be the rotational acceleration. Afterwards, we increased the weight on the holder significantly so that rotational acceleration increases by at least a factor of three. We took the same data and graphed, to find the slope, which is acceleration.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
