Two segments of the Bell Labs apparatus are connected. The segments have different impedance. When a pulse travels from high impedance to low impedance, it is reflected with positive polarity and transmitted with positive polarity. Wh...

Bell Labs Wave Machine: Reflection

Bell Labs Wave Machine: Reflection

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added over 3 years ago | 00:01:00 | 15288 views

Pulses are created on the Bell Labs apparatus and reflections from the opposite end are observed. Initially, the ends of the apparatus are left open and the reflections have positive polarity. When one end is fixed, reflections have ne...

Pulling a Cloth From Under a Beaker

Pulling a Cloth From Under a Beaker

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added over 3 years ago | 00:00:50 | 15479 views

A beaker is placed on top of a cloth, on top of a stool. The cloth is pulled quickly from underneath the beaker, while the beaker remains stationary. The impulse of the net force is made very small by reducing the time over which the c...

Plate Sliding Under a Soda Can

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added over 3 years ago | 00:00:50 | 15856 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...

Wooden Block Between Two Strings

Wooden Block Between Two Strings

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

A block of wood is attached vertically between two strings. When the bottom string is pulled slowly, the top string breaks. When the bottom string is pulled quickly, it itself breaks.

Spring Paradox

Spring Paradox

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added almost 4 years ago | 00:01:01 | 17189 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...

Double Cone and Plane

Double Cone and Plane

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added almost 4 years ago | 00:01:11 | 19567 views

A double cone is placed on the bars of an inclined plane. Instead of rolling down the plane the cone rolls up. Although the plane slants upward, the bars diverge so that the rotational axis of the cone, which passes through the center of...
