Description / Newton’s Cradle

One of the world’s most recognisable scientific models, Newton’s Cradle is a staple of every physics classroom. It serves as a visual representation of the conservation of momentum and the conservation of energy through elastic collision.

Durable classroom resource

This sturdy model sits on a wooden base. Five nickel-plated stainless-steel balls are suspended on a tough nylon monofilament from the supporting steel frame.

By lifting and releasing the end sphere, it strikes those that are stationary, transmitting a force through them and pushing the last sphere upwards. Various combinations of spheres can be experimented with to see how this changes the outcome.

In full, this product contains:

  • 1x Newton’s Cradle – Collision Balls model

The base measures W 152mm x L 178mm, the five balls weigh 4.3g and measure 23mm in diameter.
