An Experiment on a Physical Pendulum and Steiner's Theorem
Russeva, G. B.; Tsutsumanova, G. G.; Russev, S. C.
Physics Education, v45 n1 p58-62 Jan 2010
Introductory physics laboratory curricula usually include experiments on the moment of inertia, the centre of gravity, the harmonic motion of a physical pendulum, and Steiner's theorem. We present a simple experiment using very low cost equipment for investigating these subjects in the general case of an asymmetrical test body. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
