C3-12 PENCIL AND PLYWOOD Featured

Additional Info

  • ID Code: C3-12
  • Purpose: Dramatically demonstrate inertia
  • Description: A pencil is accelerated to almost the speed of sound by blasting it through a four-foot tube using a carbon dioxide fire extinguisher. The pencil will readily impale itself on a piece of 3/8" plywood. With a little bit of luck the pencil point will be virtually intact, although sometimes you need to re-sharpen it after the demonstration.

    CAUTION: Be sure that the hose fitting is securely attached to the tube and that the plastic shield is in place before firing. T
