I. Objective The objective of this lab is for the students to understand rotational motion. Students will see how a constant torque creates constant angular acceleration for a rigid body rotating about its center of mass. Students will discover that the moment of inertia depends on the rotation axis for a given object. The students will also investigate rotational motion from an energy viewpoint. Students should be able to analyze and discuss the data. II. Procedure Before performing the lab, students have to make sure to measure the mass and the dimensions of the steel block. The students will then mount the block through its shortest axis onto the rotary encoder and then they would put the string on the medium pulley and wind it up completely so the string unwinds in a counterclockwise motion when facing the pulley. Students should not tie the string to the pulley because it will jar
