LMEC-5 Rotational Moment of Inertia Apparatus

Short Description:

The moment of inertia is a physical quantity describing the inertia of a rigid body, which is related to the mass distribution and the position of the rotating axis of the rigid body. It is very important to determine the moment of inertia of an object correctly in engineering technology. The instrument uses laser photoelectric sensor and counting chronometer to measure the torsional oscillation period of the suspension plate. Through experiments, students can master the physical concept and experimental measurement method of the moment of inertia of an object, and understand the factors related to the moment of inertia of an object.
