Phantastic Physics Phenomena Demonstrations
Type: Talk or Demonstration
Learn about the principle of the conservation of angular momentum. Watch, as one of your students is selected to demonstrate the "skater’s spin.” See what happens when she stretches her arms out and what happens as she brings her arms into her chest. Will she spin faster or slower? See what happens when a beautiful, long stem rose is dipped into a thermos of liquid nitrogen. Marvel at a “fire tornado” and learn about the physics behind this fascinating phenomenon.
