Moment of Inertia Wheel
Purpose:To demonstrate the effects of different distribution of mass about a fixed axis.
Procedure:The wheel is equipped with sliding weights that can be moved along the slots by loosening them with a counter-clockwise twist. Place the free weights on a holder and attach this to the string wound around the axis. Allow the weights to turn the wheel and time their descent with the masses on the wheel in both the close and far away positions.
