Introduce your students to the fast, fun and entertaining world of centrifuge demonstrations! Perform a wide array of physical science and chemistry demonstrations such as the Standing Wave Generator, Newton's Color Wheels, Butterfly Orbital, and Centrifugal... AP6471 - $68.90

Help students understand centripetal force while they dispel popular misconceptions about centrifugal force. A vivid demonstration of Newton's first law of motion-the law of inertia. Students watch a ball roll along a circular course. They then predict... AP9164 - $9.30

Demonstrate the relationship between angular velocity and centripetal acceleration. The low cost and simple construction of the centripetal force apparatus make it a must for every classroom. The experiment uses the weight of 20 washers hanging from... AP6164 - $6.65

Easily demonstrate the phenomenon of centrifugal force! Students will be amazed as this ingenious circular hoop flattens as it spins. The hoop is designed of a plastic material, which greatly increases the safety over the standard metal centrifuge... AP6382 - $53.30

This discrepant event demonstration will really get your students thinking about circular motion concepts! Just spin the device by hand and watch the tethered bobbers move almost “magically” into the center of the circle and not to the outside as you... AP6840 - $30.85

Quickly demonstrate angular momentum—with a twist! Stand on a rotating platform holding the dumbbells straight out. After a slow rotation is applied, pull in the dumbbells as close to your body as possible. Your students will be astonished with how... AP6038 - $79.00

A gyroscope is more than just a toy, it is a key in the safe operation of planes, boats, and other devices. Demonstrate these practical applications to your students. This versatile kit allows the demonstration of both gyroscope stability and precession.... AP6170 - $51.35

Demonstrate the properties of centripetal force. Confidently swing a filled “wine” glass in dizzying overhead circles as you discuss forces, rotational motion, and gravity. A simple pendulum is included that can be used to deduce the forces acting... AP6693 - $49.90

In the blink of an eye, illustrate important concepts such as torque, acceleration and center of mass with this discrepant event demonstration. A stick with a cup near one end and a hinge at the other is propped at an angle with a support rod. A ball... AP7031 - $32.30

How do you make a waiter's tray that won't spill? Use centripetal force, of course! Students build “Greek waiter's” trays to examine the important concepts of centripetal force, friction and Newton's laws of motion. When they place a cup of water in... AP4610 - $116.75

Amaze your students with an object that appears to defy gravity! Twist the handles of the spinning handheld bicycle wheel and feel the peculiar body sensation associated with gyroscopic motion. The resulting resistance illustrates the use of gyroscopes... AP6714 - $135.95

Students quickly grasp the concept of moment of inertia while waving wands and comparing the ease at which the two wands can be twirled. Each wand is equal in mass, but the mass of one wand is evenly distributed while the mass on the other wand can... AP6914 - $47.15

A great value-two inquiry-based labs in one! Students learn about rotational motion, friction, and the conservation of energy as they design the best “rattleback”-an object that has a preferred spin direction. When a rattleback is spun the “wrong”... AP4609 - $53.80

Engineered to provide a low-friction rotating surface for experiments involving the conservation of angular momentum and rotational kinetic energy. Its low-friction, ball-bearing design assures good results. It can be set on a level floor for standing... AP4634 - $18.10

It's a race! A ring and disc of equal mass and diameter speed down an inclined plane. Which one wins? Not an easy prediction to make but the victor will be clear. Results are explained using concepts of inertia, rotational inertia and potential and... AP5721 - $217.50

Excellent rotator for stroboscopic experiments. The high-quality motor in this unit provides a constant, steady rotation of objects at 3000 rpm. This steady rotation allows easier synchronization with a stroboscope and thus, more dramatic and consistent... AP4621 - $66.45

Successfully teach the concept of the “rotating force,” or torque, with this unique device. First, place the hanging mass close to the gripping handle. Students will find it easy to hold the rod horizontal. Then, slide the same mass to... AP4633 - $18.50

This unique lab is simple to set up, illustrates difficult concepts in an easy-to-understand manner-and is fun! Students get involved by varying the distribution of large steel ball bearings inside the hollow, compartmentalized plastic discs. They... AP6438 - $131.95

Safely demonstrate rotational motion from the security of a chair. Sitting down will keep your center of mass over the rotating platform making it easier to maintain balance. Students can concentrate more on the rotational science, instead of gravity.... AP6641 - $10.95

Demonstrate the unusual motion of a spool pulled by a string. Will the spool roll toward the pull or away from the pull? Or, perhaps it won't roll at all. It all depends on the angle of the string. What about the spool's diameter or weight-will they... AP7272 - $61.45

Demonstrate the relationship between angular velocity and centripetal acceleration. The low cost and simple construction of the centripetal force apparatus make it a must for every classroom. The experiment uses the weight of 20 washers hanging from... AP7362 - $37.80

Rounding a curve too fast on a bike or in a car can be dangerous! Determine the maximum speed an object can safely travel along a curved path under various conditions by analyzing the effects of the radius of a curve, banking the curve, and friction... AP7732 - $194.25
