    A torsion spring is a spring that works by twisting its end along its axis; that is, a flexible elastic object that stores mechanical energy when it is twisted. When it is twisted, it exerts a torque in the opposite direction, proportional to the amount it is twisted. There are various types: A torsion bar is a straight bar of metal or rubber that is subjected to twisting about its axis by torque applied at its ends.

Other projects. A new torsion pendulum for measuring internal damping of metals and alloys is described. Improvements over earlier apparatus of this type include (1) a more convenient specimen shape, (2) an electromechanical transducer to measure angular deflections, (3) automatic compensation for eccentric vibrations when operated in the bearingfree mode, and (4) a continuous range of over Cited by: 5.

The design of a digital torsion pendulum is described. It uses a single optoelectronic transducer for the measurement of the logarithmic decrement and period of oscillation.

The measurement technique employed may be considered able to overcome experimental errors associated with application of two transducers or other techniques cited by: 3. An improved torsion pendulum technique based on image processing is developed, which allows the measurement of the torsional oscillation of individual fibers.

paper presents recent improvements in our torsion pendulum facility that have both increased the pendulum sensitivity and allowed detailed characterization of several important sources of acceleration noise for the LISA test masses. We discuss here an improved upper limit on random force noise originating in the sensor.

When the pendulum is equilibrium in position 1, the gravitational torque, ˝ 1 due to the attraction between the pairs of spheres is equal to the restoring torque, k 1, of the wire due to the torsion.

Thus, k 1 = ˝ 1. Similarly, k 2 = ˝ 2. The gravitational attraction between a large sphere and the smaller one is,File Size: KB.

The torsion pendulum is not only a mainstay instrument in the world of precision measurement and gravitational physics, but is important in electrical science, biophysics, petrology, metallurgy, and various other fields of endeavor.

If we assume that the torque required to twist the wire through an angle \(\theta\) is proportional to \(\theta\) and to no higher powers, then the ratio of the torque to the angle is called the torsion constant \(c\).
