Abstract: The aim of this project was t design and construct a measurement device capable of measuring an objects centre of mass as well as its moment of inertia. The objects centre of mass was found by determining its weight distrubtion at 3 points and the moment of inertia was measured using a trifilar suspension design. Due to the global covid 19 situation I was recalled home before the end of the semester and as such had to leave before the final design could be constructed and the project completed, however the project was continued in the ways it could be while I was home and every individual system for the project was tested and found to work. A prototype for both the centre of mass measurement device and the moment of inertia device were constructed to prove the concepts behind the project design choices were valid.
