Abstract The moment of inertia of a body is determined by its mass and its distribution relative to the axis of rotation. An experimenter assumes different positions on the stool which has been converted to a torsional oscillator, and its period of oscillation is determined. From this measurement the moment of inertia can be obtained, and is found to differ by almost an order of magnitude for different positions.
