We did something very similar to this in lab

http://webenhanced.lbcc.edu/physte/phys2ate/2A LAB HANDOUTS/Moment of Inertia.pdf

Use Newton's Second to derive the expression for the experimentally determined moment of inertia

2. Relevant equations

Newton's Second Law is F=m*a

s=(1/2)*a*t^2

Experimentally Moment of Inertia

I=r^2(m((gt^2/2s)-t) - mf)

Trying to get to this ^

mf= mass effective not much meaning just mass in kg

If it confusing the gt^2 is divided by 2s then it is subtracted by t and multiplied by r^2 and then minus mf

Torque= F*r= m*r*a

T= (mf + m)(g - a) = tension

3. The attempt at a solution

T= (mf + m)(g - (2*s/t^2))

T= (mf + m)((1/2)(a*t^2) - a)

T= (mf + m)(a((1/2)*t^2 - 1)

I am stuck write here
