The purpose of this experiment is to elaborate how the angular acceleration of an object is measured. The report also explains how the angular acceleration of an object can be made constant. In addition, the investigation aims to establish if there is an association between the moment of inertia and probability distributions.
The radius of the stepped pulley and the plastic disks are measured using the vernier calipers. The hanging mass is lowered and the apparatus is observed to ascertain that the disk is accelerating and that the friction is minimum. Logger Pro is used to measure Continue reading...
