Working Model of a Foucault Pendulum at Intermediate Latitudes
Sears, Francis W.
Amer J Phys, 37, 11, 1126-1127, 69 Nov
Describes a working model of a Foucault pendulum at intermediate latitudes constructed of a steel drill rod with a steel ball attached at one end. The rod makes an angle of 45 degrees with the rotation axis of a horizontal turntable. The vibrating system is the same as that which led Foucault to construct his first gravity pendulum. (LC)
