PIRA 1Q40.20 Conservation of Angular Momentum: Squeezatron
Instructions / Notes:
- Two heavy masses are attached to a framework that spins freely.
- When the central string is pulled upward, the masses are drawn toward
the center post and spin faster.
- The faster the framework spins initially, the more difficult it will
be to pull the string.
