My Most Embarrassing Moment
I have had a great many embarrassing moments in my life. Some of the most embarrassing have occurred while I was attending school. One of these moments happened in high school during my sophomore year. I remember it very well because I got conned into doing a stunt. It made me the center of attention, and I made an unforgettable moment at my school.

Now days when a kid wants another kid to do something they are too scared to do, they dare them to do a stunt. When the kid says no, no one can just leave it alone. Usually you hear I double dog dare you. To most kids when people says double dog dare it is very hard to turn down. Let’s just say in my instance I got double dog dared to dance on a lunchroom table in my strict Christian high school when no teachers were there.

So I finally got the courage to get up all by myself and dance in my long skirt on the lunchroom table. Someone put music on from their cell phone, and I was just dancing away. All the students were laughing until my teachers, my principal, and the pastor came through the lunchroom doors. I did not even know what to do, so I just froze and stood on top of the table. The lunchroom was so quite you could have even heard a pin drop.

I definitely will never forget that moment, especially when I was sitting in the pastor’s office as my parents got called to come up to the school. I ended up getting in school suspension for three days because my school does not think dancing is right. At least I made a moment no one in that lunchroom will ever forget. For my school that was a pretty big deal, and to this day the students that were there applaud me for it, and I still can’t figure that out.

I honestly will never forget that moment. I never have really been that embarrassed in such a long time. I still ask myself to this day what I was thinking. All I could come up with is that I was young and stupid. That was the day I learned never to...

...Sadie D. Hood Lab 8: Moment of Inertia Partner: Florence Doval Due 16 November 2011 Aims: To use a centripetal force apparatus to calculate the moment of inertia of rotating weights, using theories derived from ideas of energy transfer (Im = MR2 (g/2h)(t2-t02)) and point mass appoximation (m1r12 + m2r22). Set Up
Procedure First we measured the weights of two masses and wingnuts that secure them. Then we placed one of the masses on the very end of a horizontal...

...Moment of Inertia
1. Abstract
The goal of this study is to understand the transfer of potential energy to kinetic energy of rotation and kinetic energy of translation. The moment of inertia of the cross arm my group measured with the conservation of energy equation is: 0.01044 kg/m2 (with the mass of 15g), 0.01055 kg/m2 (with the mass of 30g), which is kind of similar to the standard magnitude of the moment of inertia of the cross arm: 0.0095...

...Title: Mass Moment of Inertia
Objective:
To determine mass moment of inertia of a part using experimental method.
Theory:
If a part has been designed and built, its mass moment of inertia can be determined approximately by a simple experiment. This requires that the part be swung about any axis (other than one that passes through its CG) parallel to that about which the moment is sought and its period of pendular oscillation...

...[pic] The flywheel of an engine has moment of inertia 2.5 kg•m2 about its rotation axis. What constant torque is required to bring it up to an angular speed of 400 rev/min in 8s, starting from at rest?
[pic] A solid, uniform cylinder with mass 8.25kg and diameter 15cm is spinning at 200 rpm on a thin, frictionless axle that stop the cylinder axis. You design a simple friction brake to stop the cylinder by pressing the brake against the outer rim with a normal force. The...

...THE MOMENTS OF A RANDOM VARIABLE
Definition: Let X be a rv with the range space Rx and let c be any known constant. Then the kth moment of X about the constant c is defined as
Mk (X) = E[ (X c)k ]. (12)
In the field of statistics only 2 values of c are of interest: c = 0 and c = . Moments about c = 0 are called origin moments and are denoted by k, i.e., k = E(Xk ), where...

Physics 1301W, Professor: Evan Frodermann, TA: Mark Pepin
Abstract
The moment of inertia of a complex system was determined through two different approaches. A string was tied to and tightly wound around a horizontal disc and then strung over a vertical pulley where the other end was then tied to a hanging weight. Underneath and attached through the...

...Introduction
A bending moment is simply defined as “the algebraic sum of the moments of all the forces which induces bending of an element” (1). The aim of this assignment is to work out the bending moment in a simply supported beam when different concentrated loads are applied to it. A simply supported beam is a structure, usually with a straight profile supported at the ends, often pinned on one side and simply supported or on a roller on the...

1.Theory and background
1.1 Summary
That performed laboratory session on bending moments and shear forces requires good understanding and sufficient knowledge of axial forces. Bending is defined as a behavior of any structural element that undergoes the external load, which is applied perpendicularly to longitudinal axis....
