Experimental Study of the Moment of Inertia of a Cone--Angular Variation and Inertia Ellipsoid
Pintao, Carlos A. F.; de Souza Filho, Moacir P.; Usida, Wesley F.; Xavier, Jose A.
European Journal of Physics, v28 n2 p191-200 Mar 2007
In this paper, an experimental set-up which differs from the traditional ones is established in order to determine the moment of inertia of a right circular cone. Its angular variation and inertia ellipsoid are determined by means of an experimental study. In addition, a system that allows for the evaluation of the angular acceleration and torque through electric current or frequency measurement is utilized. (Contains 3 tables and 6 figures.)
