This lab was designed to find the moment of inertia needed for the rotational inertia apparatus to set it in motion. By attaching different masses to a string which set the apparatus in motion, the change of angular speed over time was first measured using the iPhone app PhyPhox. Subsequently the angular acceleration was calculated. The more masses were added the faster the system rotated. For each setting the torque was calculated by multiplying the mass, gravitational acceleration and the radius together. Now it was possible to plot a graph Torque vs. angular acceleration where the slope represents the Inertia. In this case it turned out to be 0.0025 N.

PhyPhox stand for Physical Phone Experiment and uses the sensors of the phone. In our case the Gyroscope to measure the rotation rate (w) in rad/s. For more details, please visit www.phyphox.org Calculation of acceleration () Acceleration=∆ω/∆t Newton’s three Laws of Motion The First Law of Motion states, “A body at rest will remain at rest, and a body in motion will remain in motion unless it is acted upon by an external force.” This simply means that things cannot start, stop, or change direction all by themselves. It takes some force acting on them from the outside to cause such a change. This property of massive bodies to resist changes in their state of motion is sometimes called inertia. The Second Law of Motion describes what happens to a massive body when it is acted upon by an external force. It states, “The force acting on an object is equal to the mass of that object times its acceleration.” This is written in mathematical form as F = ma, where F is force, m is mass, and a is acceleration. Applying the second law of motion for rotation, the angular acceleration would be proportional to the net torque and inversely proportional to the moment of inertia.

## Force Of Motion Essay

1040 Words | 5 PagesAir resistance force is a force exerted by air on an object traveling in air and it opposes the direction of motion. Tension force is a force transmitted through cables, wires and ropes and it is formed when a robe is being pulled from opposite sides. An object is sometimes in static equilibrium despite having forces of motion acting on it. This occurs when the sum of all forces adds up to 0. For instance, an object

## Inertia Theory

2131 Words | 9 PagesThe more the inertial mass of the body the more the force required to produce the same acceleration in it. We know from our common experience that more force is required to move a heavy vehicle (large mass) than a light one (small mass). In fact from Newton’s second law of motion (chapter two) we can show that the force ‘F’ required to produce an acceleration of ‘a’ in a body of mass ‘m’ is equal to ‘m’ times ‘a’. That is F = ma. When referring to the force applied by the earth on a body, the equation is F = mg, where g is called the acceleration due to gravity and the force is called the weight of the body.

It's a pretty big inaccuracy, but it should not prevent confirmation of the hypothesis. Centre arrows I put at the center of the protractor, as shown at the beginning of the work. The height of the protractor was regulated so that the arrowhead coincides with the central reference point in the protractor. And then with the help of my assistant, who used a different ruler to measure the angle of inclination to be as accurate as possible in our

Since the applied force and the displacement were on the same direction, the angle being used to calculate the average work done for both vertical and horizontal displacements in all trials, was zero. The average work done along the vertical displacement resulted to 18.933 J which was approximately 19 J, while the average work done along the horizontal displacement resulted to 3.495 J which was approximately 3.5
