IntroductionTheory:When an object is spinning it should follow Newton linear law F=mabut if object is“rigid”, meaning its deformation is zero or so close to zero that it can be neglected but will beconverted to angular motion τ=Iαsince the object is spinning. The idea of the experiment isto determine the momentum of inertia of a system. Equation:I=∑i=1nmivi2The total moment of inertia is I. miis the mass. viis the initial velocity. Ithy=12m R2this equation is the theoretical moment of inertia. M is the mass R is the radius τ=Iα+τfThis is the equation for torque. Torque is τ, I is moment of inertia, αis angular accretion and toque is τfdiff=|Iexp−Ithy|Ithy×100this equation is how to find the percent error rate.
