# 1.) A disk of diameter 20 cm is rotating about its center axis. A point on the edge of the disk is found to have a tangential acceleration of 0.85

1.) A disk of diameter 20 cm is rotating about its center axis. A point on the edge of the disk is found to have a tangential acceleration of 0.85 m/s2 . What is the angular acceleration of the disk? 2.) A string is wrapped around a drum that has a radius of 3 cm. If a tension pulls on the drum with a magnitude of 2.5 N, what is the torque exerted on the drum? 3.) Calculate the moment of inertia of an oddly shaped rock that is observed to experience an angular acceleration of 1.4 rad/s^2 when a torque of 20 Nm is applied to the rock

Lab 9 — Moment of Inertia
POST LAB 1) Give two reasons BESIDES systematic measurement (“human” errors
that could explain any discrepancies between your average experimental
value and the calculated value of moment of inertia. 2) The string should be level with the table top as it stretches from the
drum of the rotation table to the pulley. Why is this important? 3) If you hung three times the mass off the side of the table, would you expect different results for the moment of inertia? If so, why? If not,
what would be different?
