Can I get some peoples opinion on this experiment. In this experiment I should clarify. The apparatus is initially at rest. The end spin of the apparatus will be the same in both experiments and in experiment 1 and 2 there will be two sources of torque acting on the apparatus- torque from the motor and torque from the tension in the chain. In both experiments the torques should be the same but in opposite directions. In experiment 1 the torque from the motor will be greater then the torque applied by the chain however in experiment 2 the torque applied by the chain will be greater then the torque applied by the motor.
