Graphing the Rotational Inertia of an Irregular Shape

By Flipping Physics, 01/20/2019

We determine what data to collect to create a graph with rotational inertia as the slope of the best-fit line. #RotationalInertia - Then we collect the data and determine the rotational inertia of an irregular shape. Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics 1 Topic.
