## D3-07: ROTATING PLATFORM

• ID Code: D3-07
• Purpose: Demonstrate rotational kinematics and inertia.
• Description:

You (or a student) can stand on the platform and rotate with minimal friction. The rotating platform can also be used with hand weights to study rotational inertia, conservation of angular momentum, and action-reaction.
