...accelerators are to blame" (Farber, 2010, par. 7). Two testimonies, however, blamed the accidents to electrical malfunction with testimonial reports and personal testing and analysis. The side of the NHTSA is being criticized due to previous agency investigators subsequently being employed... ﻿The History of Toyota Corporation The history of Toyota Corporation is traced distinctly through its roots in 1867 when Sakichi Toyoda, a known inventor and industrial entreprenuer, initially designed looms for textile products. His son, Kiichiro Toyoda, ventured into automobiles as early as 1929 and started manufacturing automobiles in 1935 (Toyota: History, 2010). Current statistics revealed that Toyota is the onl...

...acceleration for a rigid body rotating about its center of mass. From this, the knowledge concerning how moment of inertia relates to rotational axis for an object will come out. In addition, this will allow for further exploration of the energy viewpoint of rotational motion. Data analysis Short: Long: Is = 1/12 M(a2 + b2) Short = 1/12(.44177[(0.4)2 + (0.05)2] = 0.00015 Long = 1/12(.44177[(0.03)2 + (0.04)2] = 0.000092 Change in K = ½ (Id + mn2)(w02 – w12) Short = ½ [(0.06349) + (0.44177)(0.0143)2][(30.72)2] = 1.689 7cm 2cm... Objective The major objective of this experiment is to explore the concept of rotation by using a constant torque to create a constant angular...

...acceleration of 0m/s/s, this emanates from the Newton’s law of motion. An object with zero acceleration does not imply that, it is at rest. Objects in equilibrium... Static equilibrium Static equilibrium con s the in which the particles of an object are at rest orstationary. Static equilibrium is when the sum total of the forces acting upon each individual particle is equivalent to zero (Herbert 133) An object is considered to be in equilibrium when the sum total amount of force acting upon it is balanced. This condition may not necessarily insinuate that the forces acting upon it are equal. Therefore, the total amount of force of the object is zero (0m/s/s). Objects in a state of equilibrium have an a...

...ACCELERATING IT USING A FALLING MASS Theory The flywheel is made of a heavy circular disc that is fitted to an axle that projects on either side. The axle is mounted on two fixed supports on ball bearings. The axle has a small peg that is attached to a cord. The other carries the weight (Amrita.vlab.co.in, 2014).
