Flashcards in Lab 8: Rotational Inertia and Angular Acceleration Deck (8)
Purpose of Lab 8
1) measure the angular velocity and angular acceleration
2) measure the rotational inertia
3) demonstrate that the moments of inertia are additive
in an angular velocity versus time graph, what is the slope?
the property of a body which causes it to oppose any change in its state of rest or constant angular velocity is called its:
moment of inertia/rotational inertia
What happens when a force whose line of action does not pass through the axis of rotation is applied on the disc?
a TORQUE is said to be acting upon the object
torque is always _____ to the plane defined by r and force
torque is perpendicular to the plane of the radius and force
application of a net torque on an object produces an _____ on the object
application of a net torque on an object produces an angular acceleration
What law is demonstrated in this experiment?
a rotational form of NEWTONS SECOND LAW
