τ = c. θ
c This is the elastic modulus of the wire that can be measured from with calculate the dumbell oscillation device with:
T = 2 π√I / c
c = 4π2I / T2
I is the moment of inertia, to dumbell the value I = 2m (d2 + 2r2 / 5). So if d, r, m and T can be calculated then in principle we can get the value k. The k value of the measurement is bout 9x109 Nm2 / C2, this value is for the air or vacuum…
