Physics 1410L Section 812Instructor Experiment Date: 04/24/18Partners: Experiment: Rotational MotionObjective: Determine the moment of inertia of an object by applyingknown torques.Introduction:
Relevant Equations:1)¿Tr2)T=m(gr)3)m(gr)r=I+¿Frictional4)total = TRotational - FrictionalApparatus and Procedure:Apparatus:1.Spinning Platter2.Pulley 3.Hanging String4.Hook (to hold the masses from string)5.Photogate Sensor6.Different Size Masses (i.e. 10g, 20g, 30g)Procedure:1.Measure and record the mass of the platter, diameter, and radius of the central spindle2.Attach a small mass to the hook hanging at the end of the string3.Turn the platter so that the string winds the mass up to the point of where thepulley is4.
