RE: Center of gravity some generalities_Part II

in StemSocial8 months ago

Thanks for sharing this other set of simple set of experiments that could help us to visualise the centre of gravity of a system and why it matters. As a side not, it is not clear to me how you managed to have the system of nails not falling apart. I should probably try it out to see, which I cannot do from a train ;)


Hello dear @lemouth, thanks to you for your important visit to my article, in relation to the system or set that I made with nails, after several attempts I got that the key to keep it together are the two nails that hold the system of particles, where, one is of less length and thickness than the other as seen below:


Now, my friend, I share with you the following images related to the structuring of this particle system but with other nails:





Another key (if necessary) is to rest one of our fingers on the shorter nail when lifting the system until the interlocking nails are held in place.


Sometimes the previous step is not necessary and this will depend on the shape of the head of the nails to be used, I hope these images have helped you to better clarify how I could keep in balance this system. Greetings and keep in touch.

Hmmmm now I see! All the images are very clear. I will check it out tonight with my boys. Thanks for coming back to me!
