A Safe and Effective Modification of Thomson's Jumping Ring Experiment
Waschke, Felix; Strunz, Andreas; Meyn, Jan-Peter
European Journal of Physics, v33 n6 p1625-1634 Nov 2012
The electrical circuit of the jumping ring experiment based on discharging a capacitor is optimized. The setup is scoop proof at 46 V and yet the ring jumps more than 9 m high. The setup is suitable for both lectures and student laboratory work in higher education. (Contains 1 table, 8 figures and 3 footnotes.)
