This Newton's cradle beautifully demonstrates the law of conservation of momentum and energy through a series of swinging spheres. The equal pendulums in a row perfectly illustrate the Newtonian Laws of Conservation of Momentum and Conservation of Energy, which have fascinated scientists since the beginning of Newtonian physics. Originally invented in 1967 by English actor Simon Prebble, this toy was named in honor of the renowned scientist and mathematician Sir Isaac Newton.
The premise of the Mini Newton's Cradle Desk Toy is simple yet mesmerizing. By swinging one of the steel balls around 60 degrees off the vertical axis and releasing it, you'll witness the transfer of energy from the falling ball to four of the other steel balls. This transfer of energy sets off a chain reaction, causing the adjacent steel ball to swing upwards to nearly the same height as the original ball. This captivating motion continues indefinitely, showcasing the incredible longevity of even a small amount of potential energy added to a system.
With its sleek design and compact size, the Mini Newton's Cradle Desk Toy is perfect for any desk or table. It measures 9cm x 7.5cm x 9cm and is made of durable steel, ensuring its longevity. Add this captivating and educational toy to your workspace and experience the wonders of physics in a whole new way!
