Dramatically demonstrate angular momentum, torque, and gyroscope precession with this rubber, 20 in. dia. bicycle wheel. Students find themselves personally involved in this demonstration as they try to move the wheel’s axis of rotation. The aluminum handle is equipped so the wheel can be suspended from a string. Weights can be hung from the handle to investigate gyroscopic precession. This apparatus will grab students’ attention as they learn about the world of rotational physics. Includes comprehensive teacher’s guide.
