PHYSICS 133 EXPERIMENT NO. 7 CONSERVATION OF ANGULAR MOMENTUM Introduction “In this experiment, we first study the relationship between torque, moment of inertia and angular acceleration, using a rotating platform. We then test the law of conservation of angular momentum by analyzing inelastic collisions between rotating objects.” Lab 7 Procedure 1.) Spin the rotating platform with photogate 2.) Calculate the velocity vs time in motion timer
