Multiple Disk Inertia

This experiment uses the computer/multimedia system to measure the rotational inertia of various shaped masses. A fixed mass hanging over a photogated pulley allows the computer to measure the position, velocity and acceleration of the system as it rotates and the results can be graphed.
