Vertical Disk Inertia

This experiment uses the computer/multimedia system to measure the rotational inertia of a disc through its vertical axis. A fixed mass hanging over a photogated pulley applies a force that causes the system to move. The computer measures the position, velocity and acceleration of the system and can graph the results.
