Additional Info

  • ID Code: B1-06
  • Purpose: Demonstrate a center-of-mass paradox
  • Description: When the double cone is placed on the narrow end of the V-shaped rails (at left) and released it rolls to the wide end (at right). The double cone appears to be rolling uphill, but in reality the center of mass is moving down. Upon special request, we can also provide a cylindrical rod of the same length as the double cone to roll along the rails to show their actual slope. Note: B1-07 is a smaller, more portable version of this demonstration.
