Demonstrate the law of conservation of energy and momentum with a Newton's Cradle! This large Newton's Cradle is one of the most incredible – and popular – physics toys ever made. Named after Sir Isaac Newton and his Third Law of Motion, Newton's Cradle is an instant classic that's sure to provide a valuable glimpse into the world of physics in a way that's sure to grab the attention.
Newton's Third Law states, "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction" and this is shown through how Newton's Cradle behaves. When you lift 1, 2, 3, or 4 balls high and let go, the moving balls will hit the resting balls, causing the same number of balls that you lifted to swing back and up on the other side! Pretty cool, huh?
This high quality version of Newton's Cradle is over 7 1/4" tall and its polished metal and wooden base provides a solid base for the chrome balls to swing back and forth on. Mesmerize kids and adults as they watch the pendulum action of the balance balls hit and bounce off each other. Also makes for a great physics desk toy for teachers!
