A computer-based revitalization of Atwood's machine

Ricardo Trumper, Moshe Gelbman

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Atwood's machine is used in a microcomputer-based experiment to demonstrate Newton's second law with considerable precision. The friction force on the masses and the moment of inertia of the pulley can also be estimated.
