Newton's Antics (Lab in a Bag)
|Author:||STEVE SPANGLER SCIENCE|
Explore the science of force and motion as you amaze your friends with more than a dozen science tricks that will have them saying, "How did you do that?" The secret science behind each activity rests on the discoveries of Sir Isaac Newton, who would have been a blast at any party!
Make a nut fall into a bottle, balance six nails on the head of one nail, perform the amazing torque trick and spinning penny, do the hoop trick, the egg-drop, and much more. Learn about rattlebacks and how they work - A rattleback is a semi-ellipsoidal top which will rotate on its axis in a preferred direction. If spun in the opposite direction, it becomes unstable, "rattles", stops and reverses its spin to the preferred direction. See? You learned something already!
