PHYS 15200 Mechanics IUPUI Physics Department Lab07: Torque Page 1 of 2 Lab 07: Torque OBJECTIVE In this experiment you will be measuring the moment of inertia indirectly using net torque and Newton’s laws. You will then compare your result to the value calculated from standard formulas. This is a “low-tech” experiment that does not require the use of Vernier Logger Pro . EQUIPMENT centripetal force apparatus mass hanger crossbar threaded at each end 4 wing nuts two 200-g slotted masses ruler string set of standard slotted masses meter stick Vernier calipers electronic balance stopwatch Figure 1 PROCEDURE 1. Set up your system on your lab table according to Figure 1. 2. Tie the string to the eyelet and pass it over the pulley. Tie the other end to the mass hanger. Be sure to use enough string so that the bottom of the hanger barely touches the floor. 3. Measure the radius R of the crossbar and the diameter d of the vertical shaft. Measure the mass m of the hanger. Record your values.
