(1 of 2) Measuring the Rotational Inertia of a Bike Wheel

By Flipping Physics, 11/25/2018

That’s right, we actually measure the rotational inertia of a bicycle wheel. How cool is that? Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics 1 Topic.

0:10 Basic setup
0:44 Free Body Diagram
1:30 Finding net torque
3:10 Finding force of tension
4:51 Linear and angular acceleration
5:42 Uniformly angularly accelerated motion
7:00 What do we need to know?
7:35 Solving the problem
