SKU: KLM-GP00017 Categories: , ,

Description

  • ONLINE ONLY
  • Explore gravitational potential energy as well as translational and rotational kinetic energy by sending a steel ball bearing careening through a 20 foot long transparent tube
  • Includes tubing, bearings, twisty ties, rubbing alcohol pads, and hooks
  • Scissors, tape, and plain paper required for assembly
  • Kit comes with a step-by-step educational guide

Roller-coasters are one of the best ways to experience the interplay between potential and kinetic energy.  This kit makes that exploration easy and FUN!  Safely attach the included hooks to the wall and tie up your tubular track with ease.  Send the steel ball bearing through the hoop to see potential energy convert to kinetic energy. Go even farther and work out the rotational kinetic energy.  Surprise, surprise – rotational kinetic energy accounts for more than 20% of the total kinetic energy!  Have student teams compete to design the fastest tube track, slowest tube track, or tube track with the most number of loop de loops. The interplay between potential and kinetic energy has never been more fun.  Kit contains small parts that may be a choking hazard.
