Product Description
This is a centripetal force lab that uses a toy in the form of a flying pig. A version of the Flying Pig lab is provided by one of the science equipment providers, but my students found difficult to follow mathematically. This is a rewritten version with clearer instructions for measurements and calculations. You will need Flying Pig toys or similar, but you can even get by with a single one in the middle of the room. These hang from the ceiling and when you give them a push they "fly" in a circle (conical section) and the tension can be measured. I also sell an honors or advanced version of this lab. Check out my other products!
