25 T min =2 π g k 2 , so, g =……. From the plot of T 2 d vs. d 2 , find the slope and intercept from linear regression. From the Slope (4 π 2 /g) , g can be calculated and from the intercept [(4 π 2 /g)k 2 ], k can be calculated. k can be calculated using the formula 2 / 1 2 2 12 ± ² ³ ³ ´ µ + b l and compared with the value derived from the graph. Why are the two k values different? Results: ‘g’ value from T vs. d plot is …… ‘g’ value from T 2 d vs. d 2 plot is ……. Average value of ‘g’ = …. . (Two graph papers required). References: 1.

Unformatted text preview: Theory The equation of motion for small undamped rotational oscillations is 2 2 = + C dt d I (1) Where I is the rotational inertia of the body about the chosen axis, & is the angular displacement and C is the restoring (controlling) torque per unit angular displacement. This controlling torque is provided by the elastic rigidity of the wire with which the rigid body is suspended. For a wire of radius r , length l and rigidity modulus G , l r G C 2 4 = (2) Equation (1) represents a simple harmonic motion with angular frequency given by I C = And time period of oscillations C I T 2 = (3) In this experiment the time period ( T O ) of the bare oscillating system is measured first and then with a regular body added to it. Since the rational inertia of regular body can be calculated from its dimensions and...
