Maxwellsche Scheibe

A body that is being accelerated downward weighs less than when at rest. This is demonstrated with a flywheel on a shaft suspended on one arm of a household scale (Maxwell's disk). It is suspended on one arm of the scale with two strings which wrap around the thin shaft. When the flywheel is released, it accelerates downward, and the scale reads a reduced weight. During the subsequent rise (the flywheel still accelerating downward!) the scale again indicates a reduced weight.

Drehstuhlexperimente zur Erhaltung des Drehimpulses

Conservation of angular momentum around the vertical axis of a rotating chair. A man sitting on a rotating chair with very little friction uses weights, a spinning wheel, and a wooden hammer with a long handle to demonstrate the vector nature of the angular momentum as well as its conservation in the absence of external torques. This setup allows to limit the observation to a single (the vertical) component of the angular momentum.

Rotation um freie Achsen

It will be shown that the axis of maximum moment of inertia is also the most stable axis of free rotation. For this, objects of different shapes are suspended on thin wires from the vertical axis of an electric motor, and are rotated at increasing frequencies. They are a cylindrical metal rod, a piece of wood in the form of an egg, and a loose loop of a metal chain.

Plastische Verformung und Zerreißfestigkeit

The measurements performed in the experiment "Elastic deformation, Hooke's law" (C 14833) on a copper wire, which had been limited to elastic deformations at small stresses, will be extended here to larger stresses. When the yield stress is exceeded, plastic, i.e. irreversible deformation is observed. A further increase of the stress beyond the rupture strength, leads to rupture. A 40 cm long piece of wire is suspended on a lab stand, and carries a tray on which weights can be deposited. A pillow under the tray will dampen the fall when the wire ruptures. The loading of the tray occurs in three steps : First, 2 kg cause a clearly visible elongation. The addition of 1 kg results in a slow length change of several centimeters, the wire "flows", until "work hardening" leads to a constant elongation. The addition of only 200 g finally leads to rupture, as the rupture strength is exceeded.

Elastische Verformung: Hookesches Gesetz

A demonstration of the proportionality of tension and elongation during elastic deformation of a metal wire (Hooke's law). A copper wire, 4.4 m long, 0.4 mm in diameter, is suspended from the ceiling of the lecture hall. For the measurement of its elongation, a mm scale is attached to its lower end and is projected onto a screen, together with a fixed pointer. The wire is pulled in two steps by attaching consecutively two 300 g weights. The total elongation measured is 1 mm for 300 g, and 2 mm for 600 g, and is shown to be fully reversible when the weights are removed, indicating an elastic deformation. Elongation and force are proportional, in compliance with Hooke's law.
