## General Description

The Inertia Flywheel Unit, "MIF", consists of an inertia disc with a rotation shaft at the center of the disc.

The shaft is supported at two points by bearings.

A cord is attached by one of the ends to the shaft and wound around it. At the other end a hanger is available, to adjust the weight. It will make the flywheel have a uniform acceleration movement.

A chronometer is provided to measure the time required by the rope to unwind as a function of the weight applied and, thus, determine the moment of inertia of the flywheel in function of the weight applied.

## Exercises and guided practices

### GUIDED PRACTICAL EXERCISES INCLUDED IN THE MANUAL

1. Study and analysis of the inertia of a flywheel.
2. Experimental determination of the moment of inertia.
3. Study of the influence of the weight on the moment of inertia.
4. Study of the law of dynamic rotational movement.
5. Generate a uniformly accelerated rotational movement.
6. Measure the time and the acceleration distance.
