FF-1108 Conservation Of Angular Momentum

Experiments

  • Used for demonstration only, no measurements are intended.
  • Demonstrates basic concepts of conservation of angular momentum through visual observation.

Description

This apparatus is designed to demonstrate the phenomena of conservation of angular momentum and its application and importance in structural engineering and mechanics.

Apparatus includes rotating bar with bearing attached to the vertical base. This bar has two dead weights at is opposite ends when the weights are at the larger radius, rotation will be maximum and when the weights are smaller radius, rotation will be minimum to conserve rotational momentum.
