If a flying pig is tethered to the ceiling with a string and propelled in a circle by flapping wings—what is the angle the string makes? What would the force diagram look like? How can the flying pig be explained by Newton’s laws? Add some laughs and inspire lively discussions about circular motion, centripetal force, gravity, vectors, and even orbiting satellites. The conical pendulum created by the flying pig offers opportunities for qualitative observation and more advanced investigation with quantitative measurements. Two AA batteries are required and available separately. Spark student interest and curiosity “when pigs fly” around your classroom!
