Effectively demonstrate the conservation of energy as potential energy is converted into kinetic energy. How high must the ball begin on the track in order to make it all the way around the loop? An excellent demonstration to begin a discussion about the conservation of energy, or to test students' newly acquired knowledge. Attached protractor conveniently allows students to quantitatively measure the maximum angle that the ball attains. Includes two ball bearings and instructions.
