Abstract The objective of this experiment was to comprehend the connection between rotational motion and  moment of inertia of an object, by using objects with identified profile and mass.  We did this by first  measuring the dimensions and mass of the beam, weights, and supports.  Two lengths were recorded,  within the experiment, and a leveler was used.  These wires connect to a rigid frame.  To begin the  experiment, we then gave the beam a slight angular displacement and release.  A timer went off at the  time of the release and we counted for twenty oscillations.  We did these 3 times to record three averages.  Keeping the same length, we then add weights, and do the same procedures previously describe recording the three trials into an average.  We then repeated the process with a different length of the wire.  As far  as the results of the experiment, one thing that was observed was that even with a large difference in the  length of the wire, the time recorded of the experiment was consistently longer when weights were added  and caused the inertia.  Also, the inertia recorded was about 4 times greater when the weights were added  than without weights.  The objective was successful.  Analyzing the data, we were able to see moment of  inertia in action by comparing the data without the weights and with the weights, and proving that mass  on the edge of rotational motion creates more inertia, and also slows down the rotational motion.

    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.
