Purpose To compare the moments of inertia calculated using two different methods, and to verify that angular momentum is conserved in an interaction between a rotating disk and a ring dropped onto the disk. Hypothesis If a weighted ring is added to the disk, the moment of inertia will be the same as the . . .

Purpose To determine the relationship between force, mass, and acceleration using a cart attached to a pulley with varying weights. Hypothesis If the mass of the weights attached to the pulley is increased, the force exerted on the cart and the acceleration of the cart will also increase. Labeled . . .
