Second Law of Motion Demonstration Apparatus for physical science and physics is an ingenious and entertaining way to demonstrate Newton’s second law of motion. Both balls hit the floor at precisely the same instant.
An ingenious and entertaining way to demonstrate Newton’s second law of motion. Have students predict which ball will hit the floor first. Then have them close their eyes and listen. Much to their surprise, both balls hit the floor at precisely the same instant! This is amazing since one ball falls straight down while the other is propelled horizontally first.
The compact design makes it easy to set up and operate. The spring-loaded release arm assures simultaneous release of the balls for predictable and repeatable results. The support rod screws securely into the base and allows you to clamp the device at various heights on a ring stand to see if height has any effect on the results. Comes complete with a set of matched balls and operating instructions.
