Purpose:Demonstrates effect of rotational inertia on acceleration of an object
Description:Different objects are rolled from rest down an incline, and their accelerations compared. The acceleration is less for those bodies with the smaller radius of gyration (square root of the moment of inertia per unit mass). Available rollers include rings, discs, and solid spheres of different masses and radii.
