Unformatted text preview: treatment of the moment of inertia suffices for many situations, a more advanced tensor treatment allows the analysis of such complicated systems as spinning tops and gyroscope motion. For this lab, we formed a system with a platter, hanging mass, and other objects to be placed on the pulley. Now, the purpose of this lab is to find the moment of inertia of the rotating object from its angular acceleration. We were given the objects’ mass and dimensions and by using the photo gate system and we were given the linear velocity of all four of the object. The calculations of the lab are explained in the next page. Possible errors:...
