Report Detail Page

written by Svilen Kostov
This laboratory provides a detailed exploration of the dynamics of a top. This lab is designed to complement the theoretical treatment of the topic usually presented in intermediate and advanced classical mechanics classes. It uses modifications of off-the-shelf equipment and available computer programs to accurately measure torque-induced motion of a heavy spinning top and compare this with a detailed model based on the Euler-Lagrange equations of motion.
