Second Semester, AY 2018-2019

ACTIVITY 3: ROTATION
General Objectives: At the end of the activity, the student must be able to
(1) Verify the conservation of energy for a system of disks rotating about the central axis.
(2) Verify the conservation of angular momentum for a system of disks rotating about the
central axis.
(3) Calculate the net torque, kinetic energy, angular momentum, and the work done by friction
for a disk that is rotating about its central axis.

Day 1: THEORY AND METHODOLOGY
