That is the set up for experiment, and I attached the data I found in the lab.
The lab given me the equation to find the moment of inertia of the cylinder
Icyl = (2hgM_cylinder) * (1/(W_withcylinder)^2 - 1/(W_nocylinder)^2)
The height is 0.9m
The Attempt at a Solution
Me and my lab partner work separately and then we compare the Icyl value, in the attached file column J is his value, column K is my value and the two graph. I'm not sure which one is right, please explain to me what we did wrong?
And my graph (I cyl) doesn't look right too, please explain. Thank you very much
