Newton’s Cradle is a device illustrating the principle of conservation of momentum and energy during an elastic collision of balls.
Pull back the steel ball on one end and let it fall. When it hits, it transfers its energy to the ball at the far end of the line, setting it in motion. While the ones in the middle stay perfectly still.
This Newton’s Cradle is a perfect decoration for desks and tables, whether at the office or at home.
Suitable for children to experience the fun of mechanics in the process of playing this fun gadget.
Can be meditative and fun to watch also.
Demonstrate conservation of momentum and energy with swinging spheres. Newton’s Cradle teaches principles of physics in a fun, hands-on way. Great desk decoration.
