Optional Practical: Measuring moment of Inertia

IB Physics: Optional Practical: Measuring moment of Inertia

In this practical the PASCO rotational dynamics apparatus will be used to measure the moment of inertia of a rotating bar with and without attached masses. A Smart pulley will be used to measure the tangential acceleration, this is a 10 spoke pulley mounted in a photo gate. The computer records every time a spoke breaks the light beam enabling velocity and acceleration to be calculated.What other bit of information does...
