A wheel, which can unroll around its axis on two cords, moves a gravitational field. This process is filmed with a video camera. The potential energy, kinetic energy, and rotational energy are converted into one another and determined as a function of time with the aid of the "measure Dynamics" software.
1.Determination of the moment of inertia of the Maxwell wheel by way of the distance-time relationship.
2.Determination of the moment of inertia of the Maxwell wheel by way of the velocity-time relationship.
3.Graphical representation of the potential energy, kinetic energy, and rotational energy as a function of time.
