Gravity

PIRA classification 1L

?? Demonstrations listed of which ?? are grayed out

Grayed out demonstrations are not available or within our archive and are under consideration to be added.

1L10. Universal Gravitational Constant

PIRA #

Demonstration Name

Abstract

1L10.10

Cavendish Balance Film Loop

Time lapse of the Cavendish experiment.

1L10.20

Cavendish Balance Model

A model of the Cavendish balance.

1L10.30

Cavendish Balance

Standard Cavendish experiment with lead balls and optical lever detection, mounted permanently in the classrooms. Adjust hours before the experiment.

1L10.34

Cavendish Balance Wire Replacement

Use amorphous metallic ribbon as a wire replacement which gives a higher spring constant and is more durable.

1L10.36

Modified Torsion Balance

A very small suspension wire is used allowing the linear accelerations to be measured directly.

1L10.42

Servo Mechanism Cavendish Balance

The torsion bar does not appreciably rotate. A simple electronic servomechanism is used to maintain rotational equilibrium as an external mass is introduced. The resulting servo correction voltage is proportional to the torque due to gravity. This effect can be observed in tens of seconds.
