The angular acceleration is constant... so it doesn't vary. The value may vary due to uncertainty which is observed as error bars on the plot. Your plot should be a straight line with a slope proportional to the angular acceleration. The value calculated from the slope is the value you should report in the table for question 1.

For question 3 you should show some sample calculations. Definitely all calculations for question 4.

Moment of Inertia Lab Clarifications?

Post by Deanna Choi on Mon Feb 25, 2013 3:01 am

I know in question 2 we discuss the constancy of the angular acceleration and I recognize the values vary slightly for a different number of revolutions, so which value should we put down (or some average?) in the table for question 1?

Also, for questions 3 and 4, do we include our calculations or simply report the results?
