Setup Example for Moment of Inertia
The equipment and items for experiment
Moment of inertia apparatus; hooked Mass set; string; a meter stick;
caliper; pulley; two photo gates; right angle support clamp holder; V-
groove (Table) clamp; two extension clamps; a long aluminum bar
This is the initial setup to measure the moment of inertia of the shaft (the axis of the apparatus).
Then, put one of the object and measure how it is accelerated with two photo gates.
Likewise, use the other object.
What is the moment of inertia? How is it different from mass?
