Zizi Chen Zizi Chen Partners: Xin Hao Lin, Nooiz Uddin Instructor: Prof. Etan Bourkoff Performed Date: March 11, 2010 Torque – Rotational Equilibrium Objective: To gain a quantitative understanding of the concepts of torque and moment of inertia, and verify that, when an object is in rotational equilibrium, the net torque on the object is zero. Apparatus: Ruler Support Weights Hangers Procedure : 1. Balance the meter stick in a horizontal position on its knife-edge supports with no weights attached. Record the point on the stick at with it balances. 2. Suspend two or three masses from the meter stick as indicated in the case and move them until the meter stick is balanced. Record the mass values and their positions. 3. Move the hangers to the position where the case states. 4. Determine the lever arm associated with each mass and record the values. 5. Repeat from step 2 to step 4, due to different situations in other cases. 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
