Note the angle of the pendulum. What happens if the skateboard slows or goes up a ramp? Centripetal acceleration Spin an apparatus, such as shown in Figure 5-3 or 5-4. A pair of candles at either end of a spinning board is another way to do this. The floating bob apparatus is commercially available or can be assembled from fishing bobs (or Styrofoam balls), baby food jars, a piece of wood with a hole in the center, and a metal post. Figure 5-2 “Skateboard” accelerometer. Expected Results A pendulum hangs vertically when moving at constant velocity.

Special relativity. Appendix A Appendix B Index Introduction Who This Book Is Written For This book has been written for anyone who is interested in, obsessed with, or simply mildly curious about exploring physics. The experiments in this book are intended to serve as a resource for teachers at all levels to use in planning laboratory activities for their classes and to get ideas for demonstrations. This book can also provide a way for anyone not necessarily directly involved with an academic physics class—including parents, scout leaders, and hobbyists—to pursue the world of physics as far as their interests take them.

Staple a plastic sheet to the bottom of the Hovercraft. Trim off the excess plastic. Insert a bolt from the underside of the Hovercraft, through a plastic spacer (made from a plastic coffee-can lid). Attach the bolt through washers on the top and bottom, and then secure it with a nut. Tape all the seals between the leaf blower and the plywood, and the plastic sheet and the plywood, to make them as airtight as possible. Cut several approximately 2-inch diameter vent holes in the plastic sheet a few inches from the outer circumference of the plastic spacer.
