Caution: Strong Gravitational Field Present
Reif, Marc
Physics Teacher, v52 n5 p309 May 2014
I came up with a new way to introduce the concept of a constant gravitational field near the surface of the Earth. I made "g-field detectors" (see Fig. 1 ) and suspended them by strings from the ceiling in a regular spacing. The detectors are cardstock arrows with a hole punched out of them and the letter "g" in the center.
