Purpose:Demonstrate the direction of the acceleration in both rotational and translational coordinate systems
Description:In each experiment the ping-pong balls act as accelerometers. When the jars are rotated, the ball suspended from the bottom of the water-filled jar moves toward the direction of the acceleration, while the ball suspended from the top of the air-filled jar moves in the direction opposite the acceleration. The ping-pong ball in the water-filled tube indicates the direction of the acceleration when the tube is accelerated linearly or rotated.
