I6-40: MOLECULAR MOTION DEMO - SOLIDS

i6-40ai6-40b

Additional Info

  • ID Code: I6-40
  • Purpose: Model the behavior of solids.
  • Description: A set of small balls of equal mass is placed in the vibrator in a curved glass dish with the concave side up. The gravitational force caused by the curvature of the dish causes them to form an array, corresponding to a crystal lattice. As the vibrator motion is increased, the molecules do not move about randomly, but rather vibrate about their original positions, representing vibratory motion of atoms in a crystal lattice.
