Abstract
By graphing the experimentally determined angular accelerations of objects and then
plotting them against m(g-a), the moment of inertia was found to be 0.0063gm2 with no
additional mass, 0.0324gm2 with
Experiment #6 2-D Collision June 11, 2008 Erin Samplin Group Member: Catie Destio
Abstract The purpose of this laboratory experiment is to demonstrate the laws of conservation of momentum and conservation of energy in elastic and inelastic collisi
Abstract:
The slope of T2 as a function of L, including experimental error was (42/g)L and the
slope of T2 as a function of 1/geff. The experimental slopes were 0.2677 and 0.1025
respectively while their theoretical values were 0.248 and 0.102 respectivel
