- Learn how you can use physics like inertia and potential energy
- A fantastic and colorful introduction to physics
- A quick and easy classroom demonstration
From levitation to airplanes flying miles above the Earth’s surface, magicians and scientists alike have made countless efforts at defying gravity. Even Steve Spangler likes to toss his hat into “gravitational defiance.” With Newton’s Beads, you’ll learn how you can use physics like inertia and potential energy to empty 50 feet of beads onto the floor in about five seconds or 250 feet of beads in about 30 seconds! We know what you’re thinking, “Dumping the beads onto the floor is proof of gravity. It doesn’t defy it.” You’re right, but these beads pour onto the floor while you still hold their container upright. It seems impossible, but Newton’s Beads will make you a believer in the time it takes for them to stream to the floor.
The setup and performance of the Newton’s Beads demonstration is easy and quick. Simply give one end of the beads a tug and watch as they cascade over the side of your container.
Newton’s Beads are a fantastic and colorful introduction to physics. From inertia and potential energy to gravity and acceleration, Newton’s Beads will open scientific doors in a quick, easy, and spectacular demonstration.
