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