Experiment 9: Moment of Inertia
Objective: In todays experiment, we will be determining the moment of inertia of a rectangular
bar. We will determine the moment of inertia from the experimentally determined acceleration.
We will be comparing two moments o
Experiment 4: Projectile Motion
Objective: In todays lab, we will be calculating the range of a projectile moving from an initial
elevation higher than the final elevation. We will be comparing this range to the range measured
directly with a meter stick,
Experiment 5: Dynamics
Objective: The purpose of todays experiment is to test the Atwood machine to prove Newtons
second law of motion. We will achieve this by altering the separate masses (m 1 & m2) on the
Atwood machine while keeping the total of the ma
Experiment 10: Simple Harmonic Motion
Objective: In this experiment, we will be comparing the theoretically expected angular frequency
to the measured angular frequency of oscillation and the velocity and acceleration amplitudes to
the theoretically expec
Experiment 8: Centripetal Acceleration
Objective: In todays experiment, we will be calculating the centripetal acceleration from the
measured velocity and radius and comparing it with the centripetal acceleration from a direct
measurement of the centripet
