  • Maxwell'S Wheel
    Maxwell's Wheel.

    Investigate conservation of mechanical energy and momentum. Our wheel rolls to the top by means of string wound on its axle, then turns potential energy into kinetic and rolls back down. At the bottom, kinetic energy is converted into potential and the wheel rolls upward again. In an ideal world this would continue forever, but friction eventually sets in and the wheel will stop.

  • Bicycle Wheel Gyroscope.

    When is a bicycle wheel a gyroscope? When you put a new "spin" on it. Give our bicycle wheel a spin, then try to tilt or deflect it. Our student-sized bicycle wheel turns freely on its axis and has large, comfortable handles at each end. Because mass is concentrated at the rim, you can tilt the spinning wheel to feel the force of rotation. With instructions.

  • Rotating Platform
    Rotating Platform.

    Turn your students into human gyroscopes with our stable rotating platform. Now you can do the "skater's spin" without skates, rink or ice! Our 16" (40 cm) wide bright blue wooden disc has a nonslip surface and safely holds up to 220 pounds (100 kg). Intended for hands-on (or feet-on) use, it has very low friction with a weight of 100 pounds. Instructions with theory and sample questions.

  • Centrifugal Hoops
    Centrifugal Hoops.

    Our Centrifugal Hoops demonstration shows how gravity is pulling in the North-South Poles and centrifugal forces occur at the equator. Challange your students to see if the earth is a true sphere.

  • Gyroscopic Stabilizer
    Gyroscopic Stabilizer for 611-1830.

    Ever wondered what keeps the enormous ships of today from rolling? Our brand-new device demonstrates an unusually practical application of angular momentum. The sturdy ABS "ship" (8 x 8") has two runners that allow it to rock easily. The included gyroscope has a 3- 1/2" plastic rim and a heavy metal wheel (2" diameter) mounted on a low-friction shaft. The gyroscope can be set spinning and positioned to either enhance or dampen the roll of...

  • Turn Table
    Turn Table

    The first choice would be to place this on a back-less lab stool, but students can also stand on it with outstretched masses or the bicycle wheel gyroscope (#18700) to internalized ideas of torque and angular momentum. We recommend a weight limit of 250 lbs maximum.
