(1Q40.30) Rotating Stool with Bike Wheel and Weights

$0.00

It can be observed that a person given an initial angular velocity can change their angular velocity by varying the distance that the weights are held away from the axis of rotation, a demonstration of Conservation of Angular Momentum. One can also sit on the stool with a spinning bike wheel that is parallel to the ground. The plane of rotation can be changed by tilting the axle of the wheel, thus changing its angular momentum. Due to the conservation of angular momentum, the stool will also begin to spin to compensate for the wheelâ€™s change in angular momentum.
