D3-03 ROTATING CHAIR AND WEIGHTS

Additional Info

  • ID Code: D3-03
  • Purpose: Illustrates conservation of angular momentum
  • Description: A subject, holding the weights with his or her arms extended, is started into rotation. When the weights are pulled inward to the chest of the subject, the moment of inertia of the system is decreased, leading to significant increase in the angular speed of the rotating chair. DANGER: This can produce a significant increase in rotational speed; BE CAREFUL.
