Bestimmung des elektrischen Erdfeldes

The electric field of the earth will be determined. A parallel plate capacitor of area 1 m2 is attached to the end of a long bamboo pole. The capacitor is connected to a ballistic galvanometer calibrated to measure current pulses (charges). On a balcony outside the lecture hall, the capacitor is held with its plates horizontal.

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.

Foucaultscher Pendelversuch

A relatively simple demonstration and quantitative determination of the rotation of the earth using a simple pendulum several meters long, the so-called Foucault pendulum. The frequency of rotation can be measured in less than one minute. After carefully damping any spurious vibrations of the pendulum held at its maximum excursion, it is released using a mechanism that avoids shaking it. On the projection screen one can see how the maximum excursion of the pendulum wire shifts from one period to the next. A quantitative evaluation leads to the well known rotational frequency of the earth (1/day). Note that for this evaluation the geographic latitude has to be considered at which the experiment is being performed (f = 51.5 degrees). The actual rotational frequency of the observed rosette trace is here smaller than on the pole. On the equator, it would vanish.
