Good Rotational Motion Report Example
Purposes of the lab experiment were to analyze rotating effects of a force; to be familiar with torque, moment of inertia and angular acceleration and how these relate to each other; to check whether the angular momentum was conserved when a ring was dropped onto a rotating disk. In the lab, moment of inertia for a solid circular disk and a ring were evaluated. A solid disk and a ring; three photogates connected to the measurement box; a rotational assembly on a heavy “A” shaped base; set of weights; flag; string and pulley assembly; a rotating platform with a square mass attached (used for the leveling the base) were used in this experiment.
Linear acceleration was calculated from the following equation.
In the above equation x31, x 21, t31, t21 were measured in this experiment. Angular acceleration was calculated by dividing linear acceleration by the radius of disk.
Thus, torque was calculated by following equation which is based on Newton’s Second Law of Inertia.
where g is gravitational acceleration. In the above equation, force is m (g-a) and r is radius i.e. lever arm of the torque. Finally, total net torque was determined by evaluating difference between torque exerted by the string mass and the frictional torque in the opposite direction.
In the above equation I is moment of inertia.

The experiment was carried out safely. Experimental results obtained were as desired and percentage of error was low. It was also found out that angular momentum was conserved in this experiment. Probable sources of errors may be the frictional force on torque that affected the final angular momentum of the ring disk system. Nonetheless, objectives of the experiment were fully met. So, it can be said that the lab experiment was successful.
