Tennis Rackets and the Parallel Axis Theorem
Christie, Derek
Physics Teacher, v52 n4 p208-209 Apr 2014
This simple experiment uses an unusual graph straightening exercise to confirm the parallel axis theorem for an irregular object. Along the way, it estimates experimental values for g and the moment of inertia of a tennis racket. We use Excel to find a 95% confidence interval for the true values.
