Abstract

This paper describes the experimental work to measure the Rotational Inertia using a Rotary motion sensor and a

three step pulley, and analysis with data acquisition software. The result of this experiment provides high

percentage accuracy in the measurement of Rotational Inertia; importance of sensors to analyze the Angular

acceleration and Rotational Inertia in order to obtain accurate measurements.

Key Words: Rotational Inertia, Rotary Motion Sensor, Interface-500, Data Acquisition Software and Percentage

Error.

1. Introduction

The conventional way to measure the rotational inertia of a ring and a disk is that we have slide the ring and disc

from the top of the sliding surface and then find the rotational inertias towards the difficulty in the execuation and

also the exact estimation of time period in the rotational Inertia formula. The traditional approach is difficult to

execute and data is rarely sufficient for an understanding of relationship of the Rotational Inertia with mass and

the radius.The difficulties are removed by the adopting a modern experimental technique by using sensors to

measure the Rotational Inertia and angular velocity of the Ring and Disc as rotates and verify that these values

correspond to the calculated theoretical values. A known torque is applied to the pulley on the Rotary Motion

Sensor, causing a disk and ring to rotate. The resulting angular acceleration is measured using the slope of a

graph of angular velocity versus time.

The sensor is designed for the move in bidirectional position. It contains an optical encoder which gives a

maximum of 1440 counts per revolution (360 degrees) of the rotary motion sensor shaft. The resolution can be set

by software to 360 or 1440 times per revolution (1 degree or ¼ degree).The direction of rotation is also sensed.

The 3-step pulley keys into the rotating shaft and can be mounted on either end of the shaft.

2. Experimental Setup

The apparatus is to set as to find the rotational inertia of a ring and a disk experimentally and to verify that these

values correspond to the calculated theoretical values. A known torque is applied to the pulley on the Rotary

Motion Sensor, causing a disk and ring to rotate. The resulting angular acceleration is measured using the slope

of a graph of angular velocity versus time.

Theoretically, the rotational inertia, I, of a ring is given by

I

1

2

M R12 R22 (1)

where M is the mass of the ring, R1 is the inner radius of the ring, and R2 is the outer radius of the ring. The

rotational inertia of a disk is given by

1

I MR2 (2)

2

where M is the mass of the disk and R is the radius of the disk.

3.1 Graphical Analysis

The graph is between angular velocity and time whose slope gives the angular acceleration(rad/sec 2) .The slope of

the orange line represents the angular acceleration for disc+ring+pulley. The slope of the blue line gives the

angular acceleration for disc +pulley and that of red line is the angular acceleration for the pulley. This graph

shows that angular velocity is directly proportional to the time

3.2 Calculations

(Raduis)pulley = 0.015m

(Mass)disc = 0.12k g

(Diameter)disc = 0.095m

(Radius)disc = 0.041m

(Mss)ring = 0.468kg

(Internal diameter)ring = 0.054m

(External diameter)ring = 0.0765 m

(Internal radius)ring = 0.027m

(External radius)ring = 0.038m

Using eq # (1) and eq no (2) to find the rotational inertia of Ring and disc,

I

M R12 R22 and I

MR2 respectively,

(I)ring = 5.08×10-4 kg m2.

(I)disc = 1.34×10-4 kg m2.

Calculate the experimental value of the rotational inertia of the Rotary Motion Sensor ring and disc.

α 1(D+R+P) = 11.0 rad/s2

α 2(D+P) = 40.0 rad/s2

α 3(P) = 247.0 rad/s2

m = 50 g

Now calculate the experimental value of the rotational inertia of the ring and disc.

I1 = rp mg / α1 – m rp 2 = 6.97×10-4 kgm2

I2 = rp mg / α2 – m rp 2 =139×10-4 kgm2

I3 = rp mg / α3 – m rp 2 =1.84×10-4 kgm2

Calculate the eperimental values of the rotational inertia of the ring and disk .

Rotational Inertia of ring = I1 – I2 =5.51 ×10-4 kgm2

Rotational Inertia of Disc = I2-I3 = 1.37×10-4 kgm2

Use percent differences to compare the experimental values to the theoretical values.

Experiment al Theoretical

For ring= %difference x100 =8%

Theoretical

Experiment al Theoretical

For disk= %difference x100 =3%

Theoretical

3.3 Conclusion

From the last calculation It has been concluded that moment of inertia of ring is larger than a disc. There is 8%

error of ring in our experiment that is random error. And there is of 3% error of disk in our experiment. That is

also a random error.

Moment of inertia is also depending upon the mass of body. Greater the mass greater will be moment of inertia

less the mass less will be moment of inertia.
