Loop the Loop

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added over 3 years ago | 00:03:18 | 17210 views

A ball rolls down an inclined track and around a vertical circle. All of the ball's initial potential energy is converted into three forms of energy when it reaches the top of the loop: potential energy corresponding to the height of th...

Spring Paradox

Spring Paradox

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added almost 4 years ago | 00:01:01 | 17192 views

A mass hangs from two identical springs. First, the springs are attached in series by a short string between them. The springs are also connected in parallel by two peripheral strings that are initially slack. The center string is cut...

Plate Sliding Under a Soda Can

Plate Sliding Under a Soda Can

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added over 3 years ago | 00:00:50 | 15860 views

A can is placed on top of a metal sheet on a stool. A broom hits the sheet causing it to fly from underneath the can, while the can remains stationary. The impulse of the net force is made very small by reducing the time over which the...
