Capacity of a Condenser

Loading...
A variety of experiments are performed to demonstrate the effects on electrical capacity of a condenser in relation to the metal plates and the presence of insulating materials.

Double Aperture Interference

Loading...
A striped pattern is produced by light that has passed through a double slit. When the aperture of the double slit changes, so do the spaces between the stripes in the design. This phenomenon is explored through experiments using wave generating equipment.

Polarized Light

Loading...
Light reflected on glass and on the surface of water appears to differ from ordinary light. Polarized light is introduced through various experiments with polarizing plates. Additional experiments apply the theory of polarized light to determine the composition of minerals. These demonstrations use a Nicol's prism of a polarization microscope.

Electromagnetic Induction

Loading...
Demonstrations prove that when two coils are placed near each other, any change in the flow of electric current in the primary coil will induce a current in the secondary coil. Experiments explore the factors that increase the induced current, illustrating the relationship between the number of rings in a coil and the ratio of voltage applied to the amount of electricity induced.

Direct & Alternating Current

Loading...
Two neon lamps, one connected to a battery and the other connected to an alternating current power source, are employed to demonstrate the difference between direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC). A selenium rectifier is used to change AC to DC and to set a model car in motion.

The Propagation of Waves

Loading...
The phenomenon of resonance is demonstrated with the use of a string pendulum. Structural vibration produced by earthquakes, caught as waves on a seismometer, demonstrates specific vibration resonance. Polarization and high speed, stop-action photography illustrate how an elastic wave propagates through a solid body.
