Product Details

Rotational Motion and Torque Kit

At the heart of this kit is the Rotary Motion Sensor combined with the Rotational Inertia Accessory which enable rotational motion experiments to be performed. Basic concepts covered by this kit include the rotational inertia of a ring, disk, and point mass, centripetal acceleration, torque and angular acceleration, and conservation of angular momentum.

More advanced concepts covered by this kit include rotational kinetic energy, period of a physical pendulum, and period of a large amplitude pendulum.

The included Torsion Pendulum Accessory and Rotational Inertia Accessory are used on the Rotary Motion Sensor to find the period of a torsional pendulum.

This kit also has a meter stick and Meter Stick Torque Pivot Clamp and Mass Hangers which expand the capabilities of this kit to include static equilibrium as well as finding the pivot point that gives the minimum period of a thin rod pendulum.
