MOMENT OF INERTIA ROTODYNE APPARATUS
Abstract
We performed an experiment to determine the moment of inertia for systems
of different mass distribution. The moment of inertia of the flywheel alone was
determined and the circumference, radi

PENDULUM
Abstract
We performed an experiment to examine average time at varying distances of the
bob mass. The distance varied for the bob mass and time was measured in seconds for 10
revolutions. The average time for 10 revolutions and

CENTRIPETAL FORCE AND ACCELERATION
Abstract
We performed an experiment to determine the centripetal force and period
of revolution and prove if the same centripetal force and radius are kept constant,
then the new mass and frequency can b

FREE FALL
Abstract
We performed an experiment to determine the value of gravity (g) by timing the free fall
of a steel ball and a hollow plastic ball at different distances. At a set distance with negligible air
resistance, the time was m

PROJECTILE MOTION
Abstract
We performed an experiment to calculate the initial velocity using the average range for a
set launch angle. The launch angle was set at 45, the range was measured and the initial velocity
was calculated using t

DENSITY
Abstract
We performed an experiment to find the density of aluminum by taking
measurements of six different aluminum cylinders. The mass, diameter and height
were measured and the volume was calculated. The mass and volume was e
