Demonstrate the conservation of energy with a real classic! Hold a heavy bowling ball pendulum against the tip of your nose. Release the bowling ball without moving your head and allow it to swing through its pendulum arc. The students' shock and fear will be very apparent as the fast-moving, heavy bowling ball makes its return trip towards your head. However, to the amazement of the students, the bowling ball gracefully touches the tip of your nose-dramatically showing the law of conservation of energy.
Kit includes lawn bowling ball in a mesh sack, string, ceiling hook, and complete demonstration instructions. Ceiling hook connects to standard ceiling track.
