Click and drag the smart pulley icon onto digital channel 1 and double click on Smart Pulley. To calibrate the smart pulley double applied to the drum. Since this force acts tangentially to the drum the torque that it produces about the drum axis is given by τ =Fb (5) From the definition of the moment of inertia the moment of inertial of a system of two parts is the sum of the moments of inertia of the parts. The table platform has a moment of inertia Ip. In this experiment a disk or a thick ring are placed on the platform which is then given a set of accelerations by hanging different masses on the movable pulley. The Smart Pulley measures the velocity of the string as it passes over the pulley. This is the same as the tangential velocity of points on the surface of the drum. A graph of this velocity versus time gives the tangential acceleration of the drum surface which from equation (4) with r = b gives the angular acceleration of the platform. α= a b (6) A graph of torque computed from equation (5) and angular acceleration computed from equation (6) will be a straight line through the origin with a slope equal to the moment of inertia of the rotating system if Newton’s law of motion for rotation is correct. Such a graph for the empty platform gives the moment of inertia of the platform, Ip.

Click and drag the din connector icon onto analogue channel A and double click on Force Sensor. To calibrate the force sensor double click on the force sensor icon. Enter 0 in the Low Value box and 4.9 in the High Value box. With no weight on the sensor click on Read in the Low Value row. Hand a 500 gram mass on the force sensor and click on Read in the High Value row. Click on Sampling Options and set a stop time of 3 s and click on OK twice. Drag the graph icon onto the smart pulley icon and select velocity and click on Display. Click on the statistics icon E on the lower left and then on the graph E and select Curve Fit and Linear Fit. Click on the new graph icon on the lower left Platform Moment of Inertia. With the empty platform secured so that it cannot rotate hang 50 g of mass from the movable pulley. Release the platform and immediately click on the REC icon. Record the accelerating mass of .05 kg, the slope of the graph, a2, and the average force in the first three columns of table I. Repeat this for masses of 100 g and 150 gm and complete Table I. Open Graphical Analysis and make a graph of torque, J, versus ". Label the columns and title your graph. Click on the regression icon to get a linear fit and record the slope of this graph as Ip. Platform with Disk. Place the disk on the platform and repeat the steps for the empty platform using masses of 100 g, 200 g, 300 g, 400 g, and 500 g. Subtract the moment of inertia of the platform that was determined from the data in table I to obtain a measured value of the moment of inertia of the disk. Compute the percentage error from percent error = 100% ⋅ I disk slope − I disk calc I disk calc Platform with Thick Ring. Remove the disk and place the thick ring on the platform. Repeat the steps for the platform with disk. Discuss your results in your conclusion. Is Newton’s law of motion for rotation consistent with your observations? Do the slopes of the torque versus angular acceleration graphs predict moments of inertia that agree with your calculated ones? Discuss sources of error.
