Moment of Inertia - Mass Integration
This modeling and experimental activity is designed to give students a better understanding the moment of inertia. Using an arbitrary shaped physical pendulum, the period of oscillation at various points along an axis can be used to determine the moment of inertia. The model is also tested using a pendulum with a simple geometry. This activity is designed for students with knowledge of calculus, with both numerical and analytic integrals computed.

This is part of a collection of similar resources developed by the College-Ready Math-Science Partnership at the University of Arkansas.
