Rotational Motion LabKhater, SamiMahtani, ShivaPatel, AaronShah, RajSection 3, Tuesday 4:00 PMNovember 13, 2018Introduction-The experiment was designed to be conducted so as to determine the theoreticaland experimental angular acceleration of a thin-walled disk and a solid disk. The experimental value is calculated by using a simplified kinematics equation for angular motion. The
experiment was conducted using an inclined plane. The disk was placed at the starting point of the inclined plane and released allowing it to roll to another point.Purpose-The purpose of this lab For this experiment to have been conducted, two different sizes and mass of circular disk were used to roll down an inclined plane so as to determine the angular acceleration and the time taken for the disks to finish its movement. From the data collected, the theoretical and experimental values of angular acceleration for both the big and small disk used were determined and the percentage error was calculated for comparison reasons.Materials-The materials that were used during this experiment are:Thin-walled diskSolid diskMeters stickDynamics trackFoamCarbon paperBullseyeProcedure-Begin this lab with a short discussion with your group regarding the topics of projectile motion, energy conservation, and rotational motion. Then, create a prediction on where
