The objective of this experiment is to determine the moment of inertia of a bilar pendulum experimentally and then comparing it to the theoretical prediction. The investigation of the bilar pendulum includes determining the accuracy of the moment of inertia inferred from the experiment and understanding the underlying experimental process.
