Frictional Force

  1. Jun 8, 2013 #1
    Hi guys currently submitting a report for a lab experiment we carried out in college. This was to determine the frictional force of a Rotational Velocity Apparatus.

    I have successfully carried out the relevant calculations and in conclusion to my submitted report, I have to explain the differences in theoretical and experimental data.

    I am looking for any help or guidance with regards to explaining the causes of frictional force on the rotational fly-wheel and pulley.

    the axle presses on the flywheel (you must have encountered some resistance) so a friction develops
