Apparatus for investigating frictionless rotation. A small rotating disc with a protractor scale supports a cross bar to which weights can be attached. The disc is supported by a bed of air in which its axis is centred. A driving weight is suspended from a hook at the end of a string that is passed over a single pulley on one side and a multiple pulley on the other. The rotation is very slow and can be measured using a stopwatch by hand. Alternatively, a digital timer may be used. This can be started by a mechanism that is supplied with the kit and halted by a signal from a laser reflection sensor when the wheel passes through angle zero.

Experiment topics:
  • Rotational motion: uniform and under constant acceleration
  • Newton's equations of motion for rotational motion
  • Moment of inertia and torque
  • Moment of inertia as determined by experiment
  • Simple harmonic motion of rotating objects
Specifications:
  • Protractor scale: 0 – 360°
  • Scale divisions: 1°
  • Length of cross bar: ca. 440 mm
  • Radii of perforations: 30 – 210 mm
  • Separation of perforations: 20 mm
  • Radii of multiple pulley: 5.0 mm/10.0 mm/15.0 mm
  • Moment of inertia of
  • disc with cross bar: 0.16 g m2 approx.
  • Maximum moment of inertia: 7.1 g m2 approx.
  • Minimum driving torque: 0.05 mN m approx.
  • Maximum driving torque: 0.60 mN m approx.
