Abstract
In this experiment, the moment of inertia of flywheel is being studied by variating the point of mass of flywheel. The experiment is conducted by recording the time taken by a fixed load until the point where the load is escaping from the flywheel and the number of rotations done after be independent from the load. The moment of inertia then is calculated by substituting the data obtained from the experiment and the experimental value is calculate and compared to the experimental one.##Are you rushing to make money online?

Introduction
Theory
The rotational kinetic energy can be defined by the equation K = 1/2 mv²Where, I is the moment of inertia of the body about the axis of rotation.[2]
