Uniquely, this Science Gizmo is fun and easy to use.
See how to demonstrate the properties, mechanics and applications used and taught in Physics and Chemistry labs
Often called a ‘Seismic Accelerator’ this uses the laws of conservation of momentum and energy, potential energy and kinetic energy.
A number of balls are threaded on a plastic shaft and as they drop straight down onto a hard surface, the top ball can bounce almost up to five times the distance from original drop.
Discussions can relate to the Law of Conservation of Energy.
Safety glasses included.
