Rotational Motion The Law of Conservation of Energy states during the interaction between various objects, energy is neither added nor lost. This experiment was designed to test this law and also compare moments of inertia computed via different methods. In a selected case, the change in momentum was close to the change in kinetic energy, confirming that energy was mostly conserved. It was also determined that as the difference in mass between two objects decreases, as does the discrepancy in theoretical versus experimental moments of inertia. Systematic error proved significant, and additional data collection is recommended. By: Partners: TA: Cheng “Chester” Xu Section: 75529 Monday (9:40-11:30)

Objective: The goal of the experiment is to validate the Law of Conservation of Energy by applying rotational motion concepts. Procedure: Record the Angular Velocity vs. Time data using DataStudio software and the pre-set experiment file for the following cases: 1. Medium pulley, 50g 2. Large Pulley, 20g
