Unformatted text preview: acceleration, where torque equals the length of the vector to the point of the force times the force. When hanging from a string torque would be radius times Tension or radius times mass time (gravity minus acceleration. With this the moment of inertia equals mass times r squared times (gravity over radius time angular acceleration. .minus one). Results: Conclusion: This experiment shows how to accurately measure the rotations of various rigidbodies using a ramp and how to accurately measure moments of inertia of these rigidbodies. It clearly explains the difference between linear motion and angular motion....
