Zur Vektornatur des Drehimpulses

A ventilator which can rotate freely around a vertical axis can be used to demonstrate that the angular momentum is a vector. A ventilator is mounted so that it can rotate freely around a vertical axis. It can also be tilted so that the air is blown either horizontally or upward. Upon turning on the ventilator, both the propeller and the driven air jet receive an angular momentum. Its vector points in the direction of the jet, parallel to the axis of the propeller. The ventilator receives an equal angular momentum in the opposite direction (opposite sense of rotation). The experiment is carried out for two different orientations of the ventilator.

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.

Kreiselkompass

Principle of a gyrocompass using a bicycle wheel on a rotating chair. A bicycle wheel in a fork is mounted on a chair. The fork is free to rotate around its axis which is inclined 45 degrees away from the vertical. As the chair rotates, the center of the wheel moves on a circle. The motion of its axle is observed by an experimenter on the chair, and also by a stationary observer (the movie camera). With the chair at rest, the wheel is started to spin, its angular momentum vector pointing in an arbitrary direction. When the chair is rotated, the axle of the wheel begins to oscillate. The oscillation is damped, and after a few periods, the axle of the wheel (which indicates the direction of its angular momentum) points towards the axis of rotation of the chair. When the chair is made to rotate in the opposite direction, the wheel flips 180 degrees, and after a few periods of oscillation again points towards the axis of the chair.

Pendelbewegung im rotierenden Bezugssystem

The demonstration of inertial forces in accelerated frames of reference. These forces do not occur in reference frames which are not accelerated (inertial frames). Rotating frames of reference are also accelerated even when the angular velocity is constant. In such a frame, the Coriolis force acts on moving objects in a direction perpendicular to their motion. For freely moving objects, this leads to a curved path. Such paths, in the form of rosettes, will be shown for a simple pendulum swinging on a rotating chair. This experiment is in principle identical to that of the Foucault pendulum, with the earth being the rotating reference frame, the only difference being that the earth rotates about ten thousand times more slowly than the rotating chair in the lecture hall.
