Gravity Well – 8B40.00

Gravity Well – 8B40.50

Gravity Well 8B40.50

  • Roll a ball in the gravity well so that it moves in a circle near the top.
  • Observe the ball rolling in circles as it slowly drops down into the gravity well.
  • As the ball drops lower into the well it goes around the circle in a shorter time.
  • When it approaches the center of the well it zips around so fast that it becomes a blur.
  • Roll two balls at different positions and observe the relative velocities.
