Hey Yas.

I have the materials to perform a Cavendish Experiment. I understand the concepts, I understand what is being measured but I am a mathematics idiot.

What I request is someone to to just show me the equation and how to operate it in the simplest of terms. ie put the radius of the torsion bar here, put the mass of the bowling ball there, add this, divide that etc. please do not assume that I know any of the mathematical lingo. :)

My Setup has

2x 221g steel balls on the Torsion bar, each 1.91cm r

2x 6804 (15lb) bowling balls on the floor, each 11.35cm r

The Torsion bar rotation radius from the string is 31cm

again. I am not looking for someone to just solve the equation for me, I want to know how to do the equation.

Thank You!!
