**Unformatted text preview: **when calculating the moment of inertia of the system. 5. Rotational kinetic energy is found by using K = 1 2 I ω 2 For kinetic energy to be conserved, the initial kinetic energy must be the same as the final kinetic energy. Using the values of I i , I f , ω i , and ω f in each exercise, the kinetic energies were calculated, and the values are different. Therefore, kinetic energy is not conserved in either exercise of the experiment....
